About Michael Becker

Michael Becker's symbioses of nature and femininity.

"Art with pleasure" – Michael Becker’s artwork has this slogan as its motto. The graphic artist, illustrator, painter and sculptor, from Bremen, Germany, creates fantastic surrealistic and figurative symbioses of humans and nature - combined with erotic allusions, irony and humour. "My art should be fun and aesthetic," he says.

Becker, born in 1951, first worked as a graphic designer for many years and began exhibiting as an artist in 1994. Becker's imagery is fantastic in the third dimension while striving for perfect aesthetics. It is meant to express beauty in the classical sense. In doing so, his motifs repeatedly bring together the themes of humans and nature, mostly in the depiction of erotic female figures that do not compete with the beauty of nature but are deeply symbiotic with it.

"For me, nature has the essence of a woman, inspiring, fascinating, impressive and full of transformations."
