Wobbe Alkema, in 1924, joined the artist-movement of the Groninger Ploeg after finishing his education at the Minerva Academy in Groningen. In 1929, he traveled to Hamburg and was exposed to non-figurative art. It spoke to him immediately and his art is heavily influenced by it as a result. Time on time again, Alkema proved to be one of the few Ploeg-painters who let himself be inspired by new, avant-gardist art. His abstract, post-war works are characterised by a variety in shapes and patterns. In 1972, Alkema received international laude and recognition with his entry in the Cologne Konstruktivismus exposition.
