About Stanko Ropić
Discover the deeper soul in connecting the art of being present with the awareness of now. Born in Slovenia in 1962. I came to Germany when I was 7 years old. There I studied Art und Philosophy. IÂ´m working in Munich. Colorfield Painting (Farbfeldmalerei) means: working on and with color to discover the unexpected part of the inner soul and the bigger soul of us all. So the picture will start to breathe and to pulsate and interact with the visitor while watching it. color-field-painting.com kunst-heilen.de stanko.de

Anthroposophical ideas, the expanded conception of art by Joseph Beuys, Integral Thinking influenced by Jean Gebser and a wonderfully inspiring and enthusiastic lecturers college students formed a superior class. The study in my own studio still lasts on….
Well Fine Art can serve as a decorative one, moreover, it brings the human to its noble development and creates worlds that have not yet been but are in fact already perceptible. And so the art work is on the one hand always a reference to the future – the condition is still to remain in condensed presence. In doing and staying aware creates a meditative attitude – and while once a painting shapes the image and on the other hand becomes a piece of fine art, the picture when finished will offer your open mind some sort of a “meditation image” for the open eye ( commonly expected to be common meditating with closed eyes ) …
