Ali Eckert - „The American Myth”
Meet the Artist
Grown up in two cultures, Ali Eckert has strongly been influenced by American imagery. Following an apprenticeship in photography he studies Bachelor of Arts in Wiesbaden, Germany. After several years as a commercial director, Ali Eckert works as a feature film director/screenwriter/producer. Since 2007 he works as a visual artist, alternatively in his studios in Berlin and Wisconsin.
His pictures are often staged dioramas, like scenic paintings, wrapped in eye-candy. Eckert uses iconographic American sceneries and pop cultural elements to explore the American Dream. Simultaneously, he captures America's cultural transition. The relation of the obvious and the hidden as well as the contradiction of aesthetic and decay are of high interest in Eckert’s art.
His work has received several international awards and are internationally collected (f.e. Sander Collection/Basel, Zagoras Collection/Athens and the Neumann-Hug Collection/St.Urban, German art Fund Hungary).
