About the Art

Born near Münster, Germany in 1952, Alfred Gockel’s was only eight when his first work was published. He went on to study at The University of Applied Sciences Münster in the Department of Design. When he finished his studies he went on to be the founder of the publishing company AVANT ART. He started to gain a lot of popularity in the US in 1985 and from then to 2006 more than 130,000,000 open editions of his work was sold. He also has skills in etching, woodworking, and sculpting with multiple mediums. His main inspirations are Picasso, Mirò, Chagall, Dali and Dürer which shows in his dynamic abstract pieces.

Depicted in this piece is an abstract palm tree with the hot summer sun above it. Silhouettes of women in the center of the painting seem to be dancing, their bodies fluid as if in motion. Gockel’s use of bold, black lines and a vivid variety of color makes the piece very dynamic. The women are the only thing that is white in the painting which really draws your focus to them. The fish towards the bottom adds to that feeling of a paradise island full of culture and life.
