He possesses a great style that involves displaying his subjects using thick dark brushes on white canvas. Gockel started painting at a very young age, getting his first art published at the age of 8. He had a dream of becoming an engineer, but things didn’t work out his way so he joined the German mining industry at the age of 16 years to work. Unfortunately, jobs at the mining later ended, leading him to a hardship that still features in his artwork. Gockel states that through his art, he communicates his past struggles, although in a positive way.
