Mike Rose

Mike Rose, born Klaus Viktor Gottfried Rose, was a German painter, set designer, and writer, renowned for his diverse contributions to art and literature. Rose's journey into the artistic realm began in Niedersachsen, Germany, where he was born on November 22, 1932. His career spanned several decades, and he left an indelible mark in multiple artistic areas.

His artistic evolution is fascinating. During the early part of his career, Rose was significantly influenced by the Parisian group “Lettriste,” leading him to develop the "Zeichen im Zeichen" (the sign in the sign) series, employing strong motifs with black and red paint on rough canvas. His multidimensional paintings, created between 1985 and 1995, showcased an innovative approach to space and perception, integrating space with letters and signs. From 1995 until 2006, Rose's work pivoted towards expressing emotions, focusing on the human condition and its relationship with the environment.

Rose's talents were not confined to painting alone. He made notable contributions to the world of theater as a set designer, crafting stage sets for numerous plays including works by Eugène Ionesco, Max Frisch, and Henrik Ibsen. His multidisciplinary approach also extended to literature, with several publications to his name.

Today, Mike Rose's works find their place in various collections, including those of the Bamberger Bank, Citibank, Sparkasse Bamberg, and the cities of Bamberg, Castrop-Rauxel, Munich, and Nuremberg. His artistic legacy continues to inspire and influence contemporary art and literature.
