Stefan Heyer

Aktualisiert: 7. Dez. 2023

“I want to pull an universal string.”

Stefan Heyer and his gestural abstracts are an

exploration of histories, both personal and shared,

and are inspired by pop culture, esoteric and

philosophical issues of our postmodern digital age

alienation, nature and history in general.

Coming from a working-class background, his

journey to a career in the arts was not born of

privilege, but of passion. Experiencing the DIY

Attitude of the 80s and 90s, it was this aesthetic

underground rather than through academic training

that has developed Stefan Heyerʼs style and

consciousness of art. After a career in streetfashion

as an art and creative director he went full time

artist in 2008.

Stefan Heyerʼs works are extremely layered, as he

drips paint, scrawls words on the canvas, and

mixes mediums including oil and acrylic paints,

crayon, pencil, marker, and photo transfer. He

describes his process as a combination of the

intuitive physicality of highly energetic trance-like

strokes and mark makings and a more cerebral

highly conscientious process. Itʼs this masterful

blend of spontaneity and premeditation that give

Heyerʼs abstract pieces their intriguing complexity.
