Contemporary Art. Art that tells our story and reflects the zeitgeist. Art as a rebellion. Art that is sometimes uncomfortable and makes us think twice.
Hi, I’m Ilknur
and I am honored to present you a small excerpt from the monumental work of the Frankfurt artist DENKSTAHL on this page.
As an art consultant and educator, I make sure that art fits your personality, your style and your spaces, so that you are able to experience a lot of joy and inspiring moments with your pictures.
No matter if you are a young or already an experienced art collector – or even if you are interested in art but still don’t know where and how to search for it – I will personally accompany you in your decision to find the perfect artwork for you.
What would life be without art!?
Here I am standing in front of my personal artistic portrait.

What our customers & business partners think
»Death Apple« was my first contact with the world of DENKSTAHL. This artwork combines my two favorite brands (Apple and Star Wars) and forces me to think critically about the power of tech empires and digital privacy. »Death Apple« now also is the background in all my video conferences. The tag team of »The Young Lady Mary« and »He Shines Bright« is very important to me personally, as I am very interested in the topic of »Meaning 3.0«. These artworks also inspire me to push my very own book project »Church of Berghain« (working title).
Aside from the art, I am especially inspired by the authenticity and the »rebellious nature« of the artist and the entire Denkstahl team. In the past years I was able to experience this in numerous meetings as well as the very personal support by Galerie Vollherzig, and of course during the handover of the artworks (by the artist himself).
»The Young Lady Mary« – this picture shows perfidiously and pointedly what was made out of me. I am a woman born into modern slavery between Madonna and a whore. Deported, labeled, veiled, transcended, circumcised, damned, dismantled. My sacred cave with the fire that manifests life itself has become the fear of purgatory in hell. I could write a thousand more words about what this picture reflects. It inspires and reveals the freedom within ourselves. In love.
AL alias DENKSTAHL is momentarily without a doubt one of the most renowned artists in Frankfurt. His art is not really a shallow fare; yet art should and may of course pose questions and be critical, quite according to AL’s own motto: »The task of art is to give ignorance no chance.« AL is certainly not an easy interlocutor and his statements go far beyond conventional views. But for me it is always a lasting experience to exchange ideas with him. I’m very happy to decorate my walls and my home with his art. The service and reliability are in a remarkable way, and without a doubt, nothing less than 100%.
Ilknur personally advised me within my four walls and absolutely met my taste. She is a competent and sensitive art consultant that I would be happy to recommend! I love my artworks that I acquired from her; they give my rooms that certain something and inspire me anew every day.
The Hessen Agentur (The Hesse Agency) has been committed to artistic and creative work in Hesse for many years. On the 75th birthday of Hesse, DENKSTAHL expressed his close ties to the region in a modern and lively picture. Thanks for that!
The artworks by DENKSTAHL hold up a mirror against us. In a world where brands and consumption function like religions, where environmental destruction, war and exploitation seem to exist parallel to abundance, luxury and material happiness without producing any guilty conscience, this artistic mirror is exactly what we need to pause for a moment – pause to think and catch a breath of air; Air that we can still breathe today without any hesitation, but maybe not anymore tomorrow.
There are many people who just do their job. Some do it particularly well. And then there are a few who do much more than that – they LOVE their job and you notice that in every moment you work with them – such a person is Ilknur Özen. It is often a risk to recommend business partners with whom you have had a good experience – not with Ilknur. From the first to the last moment there were only positive surprises borne by passionate commitment – cooperation couldn’t be better.
According to my taste, art has to be authentic, thought-provoking and everything but boring. This all comes together in the artworks of DENKSTAHL. I find the HEADS series particularly well-made, of which one work of art has been enriching our home with its luminosity.
DENKSTAHL is magical! Quality of life increases with these pictures. The galleries work is not half-hearted, but always whole-hearted! Great art and very good quality. Thank you so much!
They are not so common, those encounters when everything is just right – professionalism, friendliness and passion. That is the case with Ilknur and her team. »Remains Of Peace« by DENKSTAHL hangs on my wall as a signed, limited screen print. I love the picture because it reminds me every day that despite our injuries we can be free and fly. It is possible to find peace within and to make peace with the world.
For more meaning, wisdom and beauty in everyday life. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so it is said. Could it be beautiful, even if it irritates, provokes and creates inner resistance?
