Picchio (pronounced: pikkio) is my artist name. I was born in 1936 in Germany. Following a career at the helm of an international corporation which I co-founded and expanded on a global scale and went public in 1997. Then I focused on art. When I apply my paints, I do so pragmatically. Nothing must be left to chance. I do not follow “isms” and I do not model myself on anything in particular – the picture which I envisage down to the last detail is all that matters. I never lose sight of the final result. My style is like my temperament, quick. I developed a very unique painting style, which I use in all my works. I call it “Segment Art” because I divide all my works consequently into segments. So this became my brand, which is easy to remember and to recognize. Then I went with my art into a third dimension, in which I combined a group.

I work only with a pallet knife and I have developed a unique style, called “Segment-art”, where everything is painted in segments…
