Wolfgang Troschke (born in 1947 in Helmarshausen, Germany) studied at the Werkkunstschule Münster, Germany, from 1966­ to 1970, and was a printmaking professor at the University of Applied Sciences in Münster from 1978 until his retirement in 2009. He has received numerous international prizes for his prints, and has exhibited extensively in solo and group shows in Germany and elsewhere in Europe.
 
In the early 1970s Troschke worked as a master printer for renowned artists of the German Art Informel movement, such as Fred Thieler, Gerhard Hoehme, Bernhard Schultze, and Walther Stöhrer. These post-war artists greatly influenced Troschke in the development of his own artistic activity through gestural abstraction. For Troschke art is “an expression of absolute individualism.” Artistic experiment and the development of his own language of form has continuously shaped his expressiveness. This is particularly evident in his entire graphic work. In his prints, Troschke makes use of all techniques, such as etching, lithography, woodcut and screenprint, often combining multiple techniques and hand-coloring in single works.
