About the shop


Thank you for your interest in Christoph Niemann’s art, and welcome to our shop! This online shop is run by Studio Christoph Niemann. The studio is located in Berlin's Mitte district and focuses on exhibiting, distributing and archiving the artworks of Christoph Niemann. 

We’ve designed this online shop to make purchasing an original artwork by Christoph Niemann as simple as possible. Our main concerns are the privacy and security of any transaction and the safe transfer of the artwork from the studio to you. All artworks are shipped directly from Berlin. Our team takes care to maintain the highest standards in storing, documenting and packaging the artworks.

Please note: The Studio is open by appointment only. Our team will be available for your inquiries via e-mail during our regular office hours, Monday to Friday, 10AM–6PM. 


If you have a question please contact shop@christophniemann.com. If you have questions related to shipping please contact Katharina Oberle: ko@christophniemann.com. Gladly contact us in English or German


We currently accept Paypal, Mastercard, Visa, American Express and SOFORT Banking (DIRECTebanking) payments. However, if you require a different payment option, please send us an email to shop@christophniemann.com and we will gladly find an alternative option.


We comply with all tax and customs regulations. For international orders, we will include all the required paperwork (shipping invoices and a statement which proves the originality of the work for a duty free entry into non-EU countries). In most cases this is sufficient to avoid customs fees. Some countries charge an import VAT or sales tax. The buyer is responsible for any incurring customs fees, VAT or sales taxes.

UK customers please note:
The consequences of Brexit are now in effect. Your order in our shop might be subject to customs and excise duties levied on imports.

You will receive an order confirmation via email after you‘ve placed your order. As soon as your order has been shipped we will send you a shipping confirmation with tracking number and the invoice. 


All artworks are shipped directly from the studio in Berlin, Germany. Shipping costs depend on weight and shipping location, the costs are individually calculated at checkout. We aim to ship all orders within 3 business days. Delivery times vary based on your location. 

If you have questions related to shipping please contact Katharina Oberle: ko@christophniemann.com.

Please note: Currently no shipping to Australia, New Zealand, China and Russia
We are sorry for the inconvenience, but due to COVID-19 it is temporarily not possible to ship with Fedex Economy to Australia, New Zealand, China and Russia. At this moment we can only offer to ship via Fedex Express, but the shipping costs are very expensive and bear no relations to the products themselves. If you want to be informed as soon as economy shipping is back, please send us an e-mail to: shop@christophniemann.com

We do not offer free shipping because - there is no such thing as free shipping. Shipping always involves the transportation of goods, packaging materials, CO2 emissions and labor. We think awareness of this cycle is important and a crucial step towards a more sustainable future. The CO2 emissions generated by our parcel transport are offset by the numerous projects of the non-profit association MyClimate worldwide (including reforestation and forest protection, energy efficiency,...). 


We want you to be 100% happy and excited about your artwork. Should you not be fully satisfied with your purchase, you can return the artwork within 14 days after you received the shipment. It is necessary to withdraw from your contract via postal mail or e-mail.

It is most important that you send back the print in the original packaging and in an undamaged condition via the initial shipping company. Make sure to claim it as “return of goods”, since that is the easiest way to bring it back to us without paying import taxes and customs. 

If you withdraw from your contract, Studio Christoph Niemann shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the original costs of delivery. You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods. 

See a detailed video of how to pack a print for return here (for tubes) or here (for flat packaging). 

For more info check Terms and Conditions. If you have any questions, please send us an e-mail.


When unpacking the work, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly or put on cotton or surgical gloves before touching the paper (the oils and contaminants on your hands will attack the print and leave marks on the paper). Always lift the print by opposite corners, letting the print bow a little in the middle. Be careful while lifting because prints are vulnerable to crescent moon-shaped creases. Try no to touch the image area of the print. 

We would recommend framing the prints as soon as possible. Storing prints in frames is always the safest option. If you need to store loose prints always store them unrolled in a horizontal position. Two prints should never be stored in direct contact facing each other. If you need to stack them, try dividing them with a clean sheet of paper. Protect the prints from smoke, fumes, touch or any other damaging influences.


As soon as you receive the print please check if everything arrived in good condition. In case the package has been damaged during the shipment, please let us know immediately and take pictures to document the damages. If you wait too long to get in touch the insurance claim will be forfeited. 

You can find infos, a detailed description and videos regarding unpacking on this page. But here is a brief summary of the most important points: 

Only unpack your artwork on a clean surface for example a large table or on a carpet to avoid scratches or bends. If your print comes in a tube, we strongly recommend to unpack the artwork as soon as possible or at least not storing it longer than 7 days. Therefore open the plastic cap of the tube and take out crumbed silk paper. Afterwards pull out the rolled silkscreen carefully (every print is packed in a transparent plastic bag). Lay it down the table and unroll the artwork - let it slowly unfold itself.  


Each artwork is individually and securely packed with several protective layers. Large format prints are packed in sturdy cardboard tubes, small prints and drawings are shipped flat, protected by very strong cardboard covers.

The best path to a more sustainable future is the three R’s – reduce, reuse and recycle. Since we have to maintain a standard of packaging in order to guarantee the safety of your shipment of art, we make sure that the materials used are kept as sustainable as possible. Therefore, we try to ensure that the majority of our packaging is made from recycled materials. Find more about our packaging and how to dispose of it here

We are trying to work for a more sustainable future. We hope you will do the same: Our products are packed with different materials - so please separate the packaging waste from your order and dispose of it properly. We urge you to separate paper packaging from plastic packaging and feed them into the respective recycling cycles. (This also means removing the plastic caps from the shipping tubes with pliers or similar). Flatten the paper boxes to put them in your paper bin, or cut them up first to make sure your bin doesn’t fill up as quickly.

Thank you for your help - separate waste collection is your contribution to climate protection. You will find an overview of the different packaging materials and how to dispose of them correctly here


Since safe shipping of glass frames is prohibitively expensive, we only offer unframed work. Here we have collected a few basic framing recommendations.

How does pricing work?
In order to allow more people to buy our prints, our relatively low starting prices provide an advantage for those who decide to buy early on. Limited, signed Editions sell out over time and increase in value: When the first half of an edition is sold, it increases in price and again if only a few copies of that edition are left.

How do I recognise an original drawing or a print by Christoph Niemann?
Each print and drawing is signed and comes with a signed and stamped certificate of authenticity.
