    Arvid Boecker (born 1964) in Wuppertal) is a German painter and curator. He is a representative of concrete art and focuses on color field painting. Arvid Boecker's theme as an artist is color itself. He uses oil paint, which he manufactures himself from pigments and applies to canvas. Since priming the canvases requires long drying times, Boecker always creates entire rows of canvasses with the same dimensions, on which he then alternately works. He numbers the images and adds a hash tag to them, for example: "#1103". He describes these series as "picture families". Arvid Boecker determines right at the beginning how he deals with the surface, dividing it up for certain color applications. His works are either rectangular or square. Since 2014 Boecker has concentrated on the format 20×16 inches, which he divides by a longitudinal line into two fields, which he then paints with different colors. The color is applied in up to 40 layers, partly wash, partly impasto. Arvid Boecker uses squeegees to remove older layers of paint or applies new layers of paint with the painting knife.[6] This processing can take up to one year.
