Work of painter Ulrich Erben is in principle based on a contraction of the neighborhood colors, with their harmony, or contrast and the resulting energy. Erben often applied the colors in many only partially covering layers and thus achieves a special depth of the paintings. He is a highly respected master of "color field painting" and already shortly after his graduating on academies in Germany and Italy discovered his rare ability to work with reduction of the painting´s content. Since eightees he is a professor at the prestigious academy in Düsseldorf and his artistic path lines a long serie of very impressive and important exhibitions.
Artist was born in 1940, works in Düsseldorf and in Bagnoregio near Rome
