The German-American Ralph Ali Eckert, born in Miami, has been awarded numerous prizes for his work.  His art is internationally being collected by the Zagoras Collection, Collection Sander, Collection Neumann-Hug, German Art Fund Hungary and several private collectors.

Eckert's over-all topic is ‚story telling'. Mystical and absract or visionary narrative.  In his art Eckert leaves parts away.  The missing links are unconsciously added by the viewer.  Thus, the spectator creates his own story.

Eckert's early apprenticeship as a photographer gave him his basic skills, his degree in art school sharpened his sense for style and aesthetics and finally his work as a feature film writer/director gave him the ability to create fictitious worlds and characters.  It all leads into his art.
