Afrid Ghoffrani

Afrid Ghoffrani, born in 1959 in Bochum, Germany

Travelling for the past 30+ years in Asia has deeply influenced me. Most of my paintings start as a drawing in my sketch book.  I love to catch the peaceful moments when nobody is looking and to share the quiet and stillness I experience.  Color is essential.  I enjoy both simplicity and detail and try to combine these in my paintings.

For me, painitng is like meditating.  It brings me to a place that is dreamlike.
