Astrid’s works are a part of many public and private collections in New York, Washington, NewJersey, Florida, California, Texas, South Korea, the UK, France, Spain, Austria and Germany.
Stoeppel was born on the 7th of June 1974 in Weilheim, Germany. After her studies in biology and
human genetics in Munich she decided to enter in the own family business, a store with books,
stationery and art supplies located in Weilheim. The different colors and the white, large canvases,
which she daily sold in her shop, attracted her in a magical way. She started to paint and finished
her own large abstract artworks.
Her first exhibitions (2012) took place in her studio and in store rooms and shop windows with
awesome success. In 2014 Astrid Stoeppel designed her own website, created social media
profiles and became a member of various online galleries and art blogs. Now she gets invitations
to national and international group or solo shows as well as art fairs and charity events. She also
has been nominated for some art awards.
Astrid has experimented with several mediums, such as oil pigment sticks, watercolor, spray paint
and ink, but acrylics tend to her most preferred medium. The last years she worked on different
styles. The various series with acrylic colors „Colorful acrylics“, „No colors“ and „Emotional acrylics“
are painted on large canvases. Bright, bold and powerful colors on a white or colored background
in common geometric shapes like lines, dots, circles and color fields.
In 2018 and 2019 she focused her work on the very unique series “Colorful acrylics“. After two very
successful solo shows in Germany and an amazing artfair in Brooklyn/New York her colorful
creativity is enormous. She exhibited at Art Basel Miami 2018 and 2019 and her work is also listed
on Artsy now.
Astrid believes: „If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough!“
