Raimund Girke, German (1930 - 2002)

Raimund Girke

Raimund Girke was born in 1930 in the Lower Siesian town of Heinzendorf. He grew up in Reichenbach until his family was deported in 1946, as the territory became part of Poland, after which they settled in the vicinity of Osnabrück. From 1951 until 1952 he studied at the Werkkunstschule in Hanover and subsequently attended the Staatlichen Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf until 1956. Even early on, he enjoyed great success: in 1959 he received the city of Wolfsburg’s prize for painting and in 1962 he was awarded the Kunstpreis der Jugend in Stuttgard. Between 1966 and 1971 he taught at the Werkkunstschule in Hanover before following a call to the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. Girke lived and worked in Cologne and Berlin until he passed away in 2002. Today, his work can be found in several public collections in Germany and abroad.
