German painter Skadi Engeln, born in Aachen in 1966, now lives in Berlin, where she works as a freelance artist. From 1987 to 1988, she was a student of the Essen painter Hermann Baldenbach and studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Ottersberg from 1990 to 1995, learned sculpturing from Robert van de Laar and painting from Michael Kohr and Hermanus Westendorp.
Since 2001, Skadi Engeln has been exploring the field of abstract landscape painting. In 2011, her painterly handwriting evolved and she began to transform and visually disturb her works. Stripes and lines weave through her images and merely hint at what lies behind them. Since 2016, the artist has also included human beings as elements in her works, thus artistically exploring a possible synthesis of landscape and figure, of the world and of man.
