Her work

Melanie Farrenkopf is a German artist working near Munich known for her bright and powerful paintings. Mel's hallmarks are bathroom paintings that address the themes of our time. Her materials are 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 Lovis Corinth and Edward Hopper and their techniques and she 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 and
watercolors ...

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

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.
