Greetings! My name is Michael Apelt. I am a 55 year old self-taught artist from Germany. I became interested in abstract and contemporary art as a way of escaping the gray walls of this place. Art helps me express my artistic talent, which I use as a tool to help pass the time in a productive, positive, and uplifting manner.
I have been an artist for about 27 years, using mostly colored pencil and paper. I recently started painting on canvas and, with the help and encouragement of my legal team, feel I'm making great strides in matching my painting ability with that of my pencil with pencil.
Art has a way of providing me a certain amount of focus in abstract images and style of colorful expressionism. I think each of my paintings tell a personal story of both common and special relationships and memories that I hope will be appreciated.
Your generous support will help me with art resources and rehabilitative programs. I have many ideas for more work and welcome the challenge of any special requests from my viewers. Click here to visit my online portfolio where my work can be viewed and purchased on more than 70 products.

Conquest, by Michael Apelt
With great power comes great responsibility, as a conqueror learns that, with the spoils of war, comes the obligation, problems, and responsibilities left over from those who came before him.

Dragon Slayer, by Michael Apelt
A knight has the chance to win fame and fortune after he slays this legendary ghostly dragon, but must first face fear within to emerge triumphantly.
From the stalagtites, to the determined warrior at the dragon's feet, "ware" emblazoned with the Dragon Slayer image leaves an indelible impression. View and purchase Dragon Slayer here.
