Denkstahl – an artist between classical art history and rebellion

AL alias DENKSTAHL is an autodidact artist. While three decades ago his work was strongly influenced by abstract and action painting, he now has adopted digital art as his chosen profession and expression. Digital visual art has its origins in socially critical comics...

A day without a smile is a lost day – so what!?

DENKSTAHL’s work So What (orig. Na und) combines comedy, rebellion and tragedy in a cynical way. It is somewhat a tragic comedy; I dare say that this is an analogy to life. »It doesn't matter«, »so what«, »nevermind«, »it is not important« – many arguments have...

The third modified edition of the biographical art book DENKSTAHL. art of a rebellious mind has been published in 2021, and the English edition is now also available. The changes in the third edition are mainly related to the expanded chapters of the art series with recent works of the Frankfurt artist.

DENKSTAHL. art of a rebellious mind tells the story of an artist from the streets to art. The biographical account is followed by illustrations of ALs earlier artworks. Later turning to digital art, AL takes up the expressions and motifs known from street art. His poetry and aphorisms are as strong in their expression as his paintings.

The images are often accompanied by provocative and humorous image titles as well as poetic and philosophical texts that deepen the artist’s point of view. AL has mastered the art of thinking in pictures like hardly anyone else. In doing so, he often uses a strong symbolic language. His play with ancient symbols and modern corporate logos on his digital canvas visually highlights what is worth considering.

With over 280 illustrations and equally extensive words, AL challenges us to question our own values and motives. The name DENKSTAHL says it all and aptly describes the artist’s message. Whether in pictures, poetry or prose; in their essence his works are all the same. ALs art is about confrontation, about radical food for thought!

And then when we leave someday

»And then when we leave someday, you'll miss us, ‘cause We are aliens.« We are aliens – this phrase from Marteria's song »Aliens«, if you just let it sink in for a moment, has the potential to constitute a whole philosophy, an attitude towards life, or even religion....
