rakart.com is the official website of RAK. Ralf Kurzmann, born in 1969 in Germany,
used this pseudonym for his painting performances since 1989/90. His
first regional exhibitions in 1990 were located in the old university
town of Münster, Westphalia, in the Blue House of Frauenstr.24
and in legendary Gleis 22.
After that periode he tooks a longer break. In the later 90's Kurzmann
studies geo sciences on university of Münster and lives near by as
an artist who paints a lot in acryl, oil and mixed techniques. But in
1998 RAK comes back in publicity with his first retrospective. Klaus Lüke
provided the place for the rak.tro.spek.tive, directly in front
of the old St.Martinus Church, in Greven.
The next step is the internet project, which you reading at the moment.
The target is to bundle all the artist energy under this domain, such
as building-up free and commercial collections of regional artists, a
special network and platform for free painter. Trying to proceed.
