Rolf Behm, born in 1952 in Karlsruhe, Germany, studied at the Karlsruhe Art Academy under Prof. P. Ackermann and Prof. Markus Lüpertz, and at St. Martins School of Art under John Hoyland in London.
His works show 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 scenic as well as organic elements into one painting style and lets the viewer's thoughts dive into a "sea of colour". Rolf Behm brings fragments of his experiences into the pictures and lets his world merge with the world of the viewer in a life-affirming and positive way.
The artist lives and works in Berlin and Brazil.
