About Frank Jaehne

Frank Jaehne, german artist, born and raised in northern Germany.
In my mid thirties my passion for art came into light and I started experimenting with oil colours. From day one I was inspired by Gerhard Richter, Mark Rothko and Karl Otto Goetz and their powerful, expressive artworks with an amazing combination of colours. After intense studies and trainings I was able to establish my own technique and a unique style with a high recognition value.
If people ask why I use oil colours only my explanation is, that oil colours are the material the so called „old masters“ used to work with and there is no other material that is more lightfast, meaning the intensity remains constant over decades.
My abstracts are being sold in more than 30 countries worldwide, mostly in the US and UK.
And for me as much as it is valid for Gerhard Richter, and to say it in his words: „My artworks are smarter than me“ and I can only influence up to 80 % of the actual outcome.
