When Reinhard Verstege finished his high school, years he focused on becoming a sculptor. After learning the craft, he worked in this field for 5 1/2 years. From 1960, he studied with Ernst Rülke at the Master School of wood sculpting in Stuttgart. He competed this with a final master's examination, after this he continued his studies at the State Academy of Fine Arts (Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste) in Stuttgart under the tutelage of Christoph Schellenberg.
Since 1964, Reinhard Verstege has been working as a freelance sculptor. His area of responsibility extends from the large sculptures on the relief design to small-scale sculptures. His preferred materials are bronze, wood and stone. Verstege sees sculptures as his artistic credo; they must be alive and stand out with soothing clarity and power of both the omnipresent schematic.
