Patrik Roggenbau is a German artist living and working in Wellington Florida.
Having studied art in Florence, Italy he was heavily influenced by the Renaissance masters. His style, if to be defined, is somewhere between realism and expressionism.
His main focus is in the representation of animals, in particular dogs and horses.
“As long as I can remember there have been dogs in my life. Their life span is so much shorter than ours. You have to say goodbye to a beloved family member and dear friend far too often. Horses came later to my life. I have always admired these magnificent creatures. Bonding with a horse and riding it, is a privilege I never take for granted. I strive to put this love and passion into my paintings because they are not only a representation of a moment but a memory lasting forever.”
