about Mel


Mel believes in the power and importance of "the one original painting" and she wants to create something valuable with it.

Her work

Melanie Farrenkopf is a German artist working near Munich known for her bright and powerful paintings. Her materials are mainly oil paints, because she loves the texture of this medium.

For Mel it is very important to express moods through colours and especially through light. She reveres the old masters and their techniques and combines modern influences with traditional craftsmanship. Mel's paintings are only available as analogue originals painted on canvas and not as prints.

Immerse yourself in the world of colours, lights and shadows and enjoy the story the artworks tell. Mel has already had several exhibitions in Germany and Switzerland.

oil, acrylic, watercolors ...

Her paintings are mainly created in the studio, but also pleinair - in nature or the city - directly on the subject, mostly in oil or acrylic on canvas or painting board.

She always has a small sketchbook and watercolours with her, because urban sketching, especially when travelling, sharpens the eye and captures memories much better than a photo. Mel finds it exciting how different these three media are and consciously choose the appropriate one depending on the motif.
