Rolf Behm

Rolf Behm, born in 1952 in Karlsruhe, Germany, studied at the Karlsruhe Art Academy under Prof. P. Ackermann and Prof. Markus Lüpertz, as well as at St. Martins School of Art under John Hoyland in London.

His works depict surfaces and bodies in space. Rolf Behm's painting is dominated by a colourfulness in which the other elements of the work seem to float. He combines landscape as well as organic elements into a painterly style, inviting the viewer's thoughts to immerse in a "sea of colour". Rolf Behm incorporates fragments from his experiences into the pictures, blending his world with the world of the viewer in a life-affirming and positive way.

The artist lives and works in Berlin and Brazil.
