Raimund Girke (*1930, Heinzendorf - 2002, Cologne)is considered one of the best-known German representatives of abstract analytical painting and concrete art.
In the 1950s he studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy under Georg Meistermann. Renowned institutions have honored Girke's work with retrospectives, including the Sprengel Museum in Hanover, the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal, and the Küppersmühle Museum in Duisburg.
Influenced by Informel, Raimund Girke developed his very own visual language. Increasingly abstract, his works took on monochrome and minimalist features. Girke's lithographs and silkscreen prints capture this particular aesthetic - they impress with a restrained calm!
