    Born in 1941 in Peine, Nordrhein-Wesphalen, Volker Bessel completed an education in interior design in 1966 and moved to Riehen in 1969.  In 1975 he began drawing and painting and from about 1980 onwards has had numerous exhibitions in and around Basel.  In 2005 he moved to an Atelier in the Kesselhaus in Weil am Rhein.

    Volker prefers to create his art by hand without the use of technical aids.  He uses mostly water colours or acryls, wax chalks and graphite pencils on a white background using a range of material from cardboard to rough-structured used paper.

    Come along to the vernissage and meet the artist - we are sure that you will find something you like!  

    No need to book, just come along on Friday 31st August from 18:00 to 21:00.
