Surrealist and Abstract Expressionist
My art seeks to inspire, to awaken something within you. I speak of the human experience, and express my whimsical nature. I strive to bring you a fresh and compelling interest to each subject, offering you a part of me, that you may find,
is a part of you… Enjoy!
Kurt Merkel – Described as both a Surrealist and Abstract Expressionist!
I create from intuition and self-expression. I call my calligraphic style, “The Language of Poetic Line”. This love of line has been evident ever since I can remember. I strongly identify with the beauty, the rhythms, the flow of energy expressed with this art form. Little did I know, that it would one day become my voice.
