Michael Erbach studied industrial design at the University of the Arts in Berlin and at the Pratt Institute in New York.
For his own artistic work, he developed a legend, similar to the symbols on a map, and uses this as the basis for his work. He attributes a certain validity to every shape and every color. Here he is guided by the theories of the Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, who is considered an important artistic figure of classical modernism.
Erbach's works are colorful compositions that reveal themselves as a formation of points, lines and symbols in combination with colors. “The aesthetic feeling is subjective,” says Michael Erbach himself and invites you to look at his works subjectively.
