Portrait of the artist Michael Becker

About Michael Becker

Michael Becker's symbioses of nature and femininity.

"Art with pleasure" – this is the motto that Bremen artist Michael Becker has chosen for his work. The graphic artist, illustrator, painter and sculptor creates fantastically surrealistic and figurative symbioses of humans and nature - combined with erotic allusions, irony and humour. "My art should be fun and aesthetic," he says.

Born in 1951, Becker initially worked for many years as a graphic designer and began his exhibition activities as an artist in 1994. Becker's imagery is fantastic in the third dimension while striving for perfect aesthetics. It aims 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."
