Painter

»I’m painting with words.« Ralf Lobeck's "type paintings" combine color and writing, an interplay of considered use of typography and impulsive application of color. The text, song lyrics, or quotes from literature, is woven into the layers of color, which sometimes appear clear, and sometimes fragmentary. His use of typography is often experimental, a mixture of serif and sans serif fonts, blackletter and handwriting. The letters reveal their own aesthetics while the intense or transparent colors create the overall mood. Ralf Lobeck lives and works in Cologne and Düsseldorf, Germany. After studying Visual Communication, he worked in media companies and universities. His artistic works are represented on international platforms and can be seen nationally and internationally in solo and group exhibitions.

Ralf Lobeck combines colors and writing, an interplay of controlled use of typography and free application of paint in his »Type paintings«. Messages or quotes, lyrics, or poems are sometimes clearly shown by both artists, sometimes they are hidden. About his work, he says: "I paint with words." His »Type Paintings« create an interplay between the controlled use of typography on the one hand and the expressive application of paint on the other. The intensity, layering, and transparency of the colors applied with squeegees support this effect of evoking an emotional response.
