Biography Jochen Seidel
Jochen Seidel was born in 1924 in Bitterfeld and studied from 1946-48 at
the Kunstgewerbeschule Burg Giebichenstein in Halle (Saale) as a pupil of
Charles Crodel. In this period he created monumental propaganda murals
to stay financially afloat. In 1953, Seidel moved to Berlin, where he
began studying under Ernst Schumacher.
In 1961 he was awarded the
Kunstpreis junger Westen. His painting style evolved from the figurative
towards the non-representational. Numerous exhibitions took place in
the following years, for example in Vienna, Stockholm, Helsinki,
Caracas, Buenos Aires and Pittsburgh. In 1964 Seidel moved to New York,
where he held several teaching positions. Displaying 750 of 1025 characters.
