His work is usually that of shiny, brightly painted vehicles sometimes focusing on just certain parts. Kleemann began to use photographs as aides for his paintings in 1968. These early paintings had subjects such as trucks and cars. Some of the paintings were superimposed with parts of the male and female body.
