The Düsseldorf artist Winfried Gaul is considered one of the best-known German representatives of abstract Analytical Painting / Concrete Art. In the 1950s he studied at the Stuttgart Academy of Fine Arts.
His early works can be classified as Informel, only later did he move on to Concrete Art. Numerous exhibitions at home and abroad have honored his work. He exhibited no less than three times at the documenta in Kassel.
Gaul's works experiment with strong colors and the interplay of geometric shapes. Through this play with colors and shapes, the works take on the character of Pop Art, which is why Winfried Gaul is sometimes attributed to the German Pop Art movement.
