Gabriele Esau was born in Neuenbürg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
From an early age, she loved painting and drawing as a means to represent
her own fantasies, desires, and dreams.
She decided against the initially plan to study art because its contents
did not meet my expectations and instead opted for a science degree. However,
her passion for art was always present. She taught herself by training through
books, museums visits, exchanges with other artists, and personal experience.
She initially drew pictures with color and graphite pencils and began
working with oil painting in 2004.
The content of her images is determined by the artist’s fantasies,
perceptions, life, and love for animals and nature.
For the artist, visual
arts means an expression that starts where words are not enough and the camera
can’t see anything.Gabriele Esau wants to
make this visible through a realistic manner of painting.
Her genre is surrealism and fantastic realism and preferred media are oil paints and graphite.
