Ali Eckert’s art work is based on associatively told stories. Thematically circling around the American myth, he drops the viewer into scenic dioramas charged with symbolic content.
Reality is enhanced into a kind of "hyper-sensory reality“ located between elements of visible reality and imagined, subconscious and fictitious elements of "another" reality. Without giving away the narration, the figurative art piece turns into a story.
Eckert uses diverse media: painting, photography, mixed media and video installation.
The German-American Ali Eckert grew up in Miami, Florida. His visual senses were permanently triggered by America’s iconic era. Following an apprenticeship in photography and a Bachelor of Arts in Wiesbaden, Germany, Ali Eckert worked as a commercial film director. He then moved into the feature film industry as a director and screenwriter. For many years he has devoted himself exclusively to art and works alternatively in his studios in Berlin and Wisconsin.
Ali Eckert's art has received several awards and are in following collections: the Sander Collection/Basel, the Zagoras Collection/Athens and the Neumann-Hug Collection/St.Urban, among others.
