Artist of the moment…..Imi Knoebel

Imi Knoebel was born in Dessau, Germany in the year 1940. Knoebel is renowned for his work in a minimalist style that also has an emphasis of color and space. His early works were in black and white, but since adding color the artist has become one of my favorite contemporary artists.

Knoebel attended the Academy of Art in Dusseldorf where he studied under Joseph Beuys.

Here we visit a show at the Mary Boone Gallery that took place in 2009:

In this clip we view an exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art featuring the work of Imi Knoebel:

The work of Imi Knoebel reminds me a great deal of artist’s Karl Benjamin or Ellsworth Kelly, both already profiled here.

The artist is based out of Dusseldorf, Germany.

price range information: Knoebel is a prolific printmaker with prices starting at$8,000 up to $150,000. He employs mixed media and uses acrylic paint on most works.
