"The portrayal of perspectives and mostly the strong expression of bright colors are my trademark."
German artist, Birgit Kalkofen aka Pepponi Art has worked in Tourism since 1970 and has lived as well as traveled around the world to Europe, America, Asia, and Africa (11 years in Kenya). The last 22 years she lived in Palma de Mallorca in Spain and since 2015 she has returned to Germany.
"I started painting as a child and it is my passion and favorite hobby. Working with mostly strong colors, I am able to express my various impressions and ideas, which cool me down and relax me. I'm self-taught and of all tried materials I prefer painting with acrylics and especially on wood. Traveling so much has left its marks on my art. Especially the colors and the smell of Africa and Asia are deeply in my memory. By achieving a correlation of abstract and figurative forms and color I’m able to give my work of art some sensual attractivity."
Pepponi's artworks are now part of private collections worldwide, such as Germany, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, India and Australia.
