Eike Erzmoneit

Born in 1948, Eike Erzmoneit grew up during the rebuilding of post-war Berlin. He qualified as a dental technician before following his love of music and becoming a professional drummer. In 1973 he moved to London. This move coincided with the beginnings of his inerest in surreal and fantastic art and he began painting and sculpting, using acrylic paint and dental engineering materials.

As drummer Eike played with imortant bands of the progressive rock era, culminating with time spent in chart-topping 1970's band 'Atomic Rooster'. His art work, however, continued to dominate and overtake the other half of his creative output and his work was exhibited for the first time in 1976 in the Gallery Europa, Europa-Center, Berlin.

Since then he has worked as a freelance artist in London and Berlin with regular European exhibitions showing his work. The 1990's saw Eike's work exhibited in New Delhi, San Fransisco and New York.

Each of his paintings carry his personal "trademarks", which feature small depictions of brick walls amongst others, in surreal analogies of space within permanently changing dimensions of time and light. Another of these "trademarks" are his custom made frames, which are designed to fit the unconventional shapes of his paintings. Eike also sculpts in acrylic and precious metals, using the same "trademarks" in a three-dimensional format. In 1999 Eike became a member of the 'Society for the Art of the Imagination'.
