pleased to meet you:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

fun facts:

in 1960 Dusseldorf, he and three other young artists (Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Konrad Fischer) form a group and show together several times

he made a conscious decision (at age 28, only after three years of painting) to pull out of the art world to spend more time with his family and have steadier income in graphic design and advertising

after his final exhibition in 1965, his works were put in his cellar. only to be pulled out and dusted off 40 years later

although geometric, I like how his paintings have a handmade quality to them and color combos make me want to get out my watercolors and paint.  you can do that while watching reality t.v right? (sad)
