Born in Gladbeck, Germany, Ralf Lobeck chose to focus on painting alongside his career as a designer and Professor for Visual Communication. One of his passions is typography. He brings this into his paintings in an unconventional way. His so called type paintings combine colour and text, an interplay of controlled use of typography on the one hand and expressive application of colour on the other hand. The intensity, layering and transparency of the
colours applied with squeegees support this effect of evoking an emotional response.
Quotes from music lyrics, literature and other sources inspire discovery and reflection. The series of artworks »Values« reflects the core values of our society and of everyone’s personality. Especially in times of the corona pandemic values like respect, trust and courage should be highlighted and addressed.
Since 2019 he had several solo and group exhibitions.
