ARNO BECK

Arno Beck lives and works in Bonn, Germany.
Within his work, Beck reflects on the early computer games and computer graphics with manual drawings, typewriter drawings, painting and most recently with the pen plotter. Fascinated by the aesthetical worlds of the digital era, which Beck grew up with, he approaches these with manual work.
