Bettina Mauel


Bettina Mauel was born 1959 in Wuppertal, Germany. She studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy with Gerhard Richter, one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Bettina lives and works in Cologne, Germany.

Mauel expresses vitality and sensuality in her paintings, including landscapes, flowers, and people in motion, capturing them at a particular moment in time. Her artworks often incorporate a sophisticated and vibrant sense of movement. In 1984 she was asked by the city of Wuppertal, Germany to paint scenes of the dance theater of Pina Bausch.

Mauel’s art can be described as a tribute to the impermanence of sight. In the many years that she has practiced her trade, Mauel devotes herself to a single, yet inexhaustible theme: the overwhelming phenomenality of our world. She has presented her work in numerous exhibitions throughout Europe, North America and Asia and her art has been acquired by many public institutions.
