When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Heiko Müller

Heiko Müller's work taps into nature, folk art, comics culture, and the apocalyptic religious visions of the northern renaissance (of course!). On top of these strange amalgams he sprinkles little circles of confetti color like fairy dust transporting us through an unseen window into an alternate world. all this results in a wide variety of imagery that is not fully represented here. As with many artists there is a cumulative effect one gets from looking through the entire body of work that is greater than many of the individual pieces. And those are really good.
