The Magic of the Swarms is the title of a series of paintings in Albrecht’s unique style. It is a way to perceive the world using geometry and cartography to depict motion and form.

The technique between figurative and abstract painting combines real figures like leaves, animals and human to abstract texture and swarms. Behmel calls his style abstrahism: real life silhouettes of animals, plants or humans merge into something almost but not totally abstract, a mesmerizing swarm of beings and shapes.

The style could be linked to the original design of church windows by Adolf Hötzel, Piet Mondrian and Arcimboldo.

Each year Albrecht supports select charities like Al Madad Foundation’sClassroom on a bus’ that sends schools on wheels to remote villages in Lebanon bringing basic education to children, especially girls; Guy and St.Thomas’ Charity, Westminster and Evelina Children’s hospital who are famous for bringing works of art to patients and their relatives but also to medical staff as a means… “ This phrase should continue with something like „a means to heal.“

Christian Seitz, Neuschwansteiner founder and CEO said: “We at The World of Neuschwansteiner have a strong liking for fine arts. The impressive art of Albrecht Behmel presented at the Louvre is a fabulous combination. Congratulations to Albrecht – what an achievement and honour! We are very proud to be part of this incredible event and very much look forward to our Neuschwansteiner beer being served at the Louvre!”
