About the work

It’s been a long cold winter and we need colorful flowers to set things right. Get an early feel of spring...come and visit “Tulipmania 2015”. The name of this exhibition is based on the world’s first “financial bubble” some 400 years ago in the Netherlands. That 1636 event was all about an investment madness in Tulips. More historical details about this fascinating story may be found at the show.

Rudi Wolff is an award-winning New York graphic artist. Over the years he has worked in a variety of media including film, graphic design and print. He is a graduate of Cooper Union and a Fulbright Fellow. Articles about his work have appeared in the Swiss magazine Graphis, the
Japanese magazine Idea, and New York’s Print magazine. He has exhibited and won awards at The New York Art Directors Club, The American Institute of Graphic Arts and the Illustrators Club. His work was featured at various architectural design exhibits. He has exhibited widely.

Wolff’s art is created like a serigraph or silk-screen. However, instead of cutting separate screens for each color, he creates them on the computer. Each element or color is selected, changed, moved about, repeated, joined, split, grouped and digitally transformed and combined for the final image.
