Ralf Schmidt’s Education and Development
Ralf graduated with a degree in Visual Communication from The University of Applied Sciences in Dusseldorf in the 1980s before going on to study Typography, Illustration and Graphic Design. After finishing his studies, Ralf continued to develop his style and in 1998, he started ‘free painting’. Ralf’s free painting is a process of isolating realistic elements and transforming them on the canvas. His paintings deal with interpretations of human nature in its collective form.
Ralf is currently based in Dusseldorf, Germany, where he frequently shows his work in solo and group exhibitions. As well as having a successful career exhibiting in galleries and having residencies throughout Germany, Ralf has also recently exhibited his paintings in the Netherlands.
