Born in 1948, Eike Erzmoneit grew up during the rebuilding of post-war Berlin, and in the shadow of the Berlin wall, escaped to London in 1973 where he qualified as a dental technician before following his love of music and becoming a professional drummer. This move coincided with the beginnings of his interest in art and he began painting and sculpting, using acrylic paint and dental engineering materials.  Eike played with important bands of the progressive rock era, culminating with the chart-topping Atomic Rooster.

A feature of his work is the imagery of the wall and his fascination for exploring the idea of changing dimensions exemplified by the space analogies.  Eike's pictures explore space and time extending the essence of his work to hand-crafted wooden frames. More often than not, the frame will fit the picture rather than the picture fill the frame.  The work is not confined to canvas. Often mundane objects take on a different aspect when modelled in acrylic and precious metals.
