Wolfgang Bloch was born and raised in Guayaquil, Ecuador. The surface. This is one of the defining characteristics of works by Wolfgang Bloch, an artist known best for his moving and recognizable contemporary seascapes. His quiet and careful brushwork and his seamless assemblages have combined to yield works imbued with the romanticism of William Turner and the pure expression of Mark Rothko. Bloch is a rare artist whose hands are as guided by his dedication to craft and technique as they are by the nature of his materials and by the earnestness of his understated yet evocative experimentations. “Sublime and terribly romantic.” Bloch’s work has been exhibited throughout the world, as well as published in his book: “The Colors of Coincidence“. Today, Bloch lives with his two children in Southern California.
