BIOGRAPHY

Ronald Franke is a German artist born in 1960, The artist studied at the School of Art of Cologne between 1982 and 1988. After his studies; he obtained the Cadenabbia scholarship twice in 1983 and 1991, as well as the scholarship of the city of Oberkirch.

Ronald Franke's work focuses mainly in the city and cityscapes. In his pieces the artist depicts intersections, highways, tram ways, as well as the architecture that we find in modern cities.
Ronald Franke's pieces can not leave the viewer indifferent, the urban scenes; impassive and dynamic at the same time; elicit a paradoxical aftertaste.

In 2012, the artist was diagnosed with cancer, this however did not have any influence in his choice of subjects but he started innovating with the format which became increasingly large and imposing.

In his last works, the lines of his compositions became curves: the roundabouts, tramways and highways formed swirls.There were no more lines only circles.
