Thomas Ruch lives in Dusseldorf and Basel. He studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf  at the classes of Magdalena Jetelova, Konrad Klapheck and Franz Eckenschwiler. Thomas Ruch teaches at the Free Academy of Essen.

In his work he deals with themes of Swiss landscape as well as in terms of the idyll. It brings new possibilities of expression of an independent stroke to another level. This he succeeds in a pronounced three-dimensionality.
