Rep Ringel was born in 1962. Painting abstract, raw, unpolished images, driven by music, that's where the inspiration comes from and the reason why he names his paintings after his inspirators or their tracks. To mention a few; Lyves, Luunes, Daughter, Matt Lange, Nathan Ball, Alaskan Tapes, names of singers, songwriters, musicians or bands. Musicians with a great sense of music.Rep integrates music in his creations, each piece based on a differnt musical creation.
Rep listens to a song track and enters a sense of trance while painting, the painting carries a wax stamp covering a chip with the song that can be read by any smartphone. To get an idea of the process, watch this movie. For an english version .
