George Heidweiller (Beverwijk, May 15, 1963) is a Dutch artist. Heidweiller grew up abroad before the family returned to the Netherlands. He enrolled at the Art Academy in The Hague in the course graphic design. After his third year at the academy he moved to Greece. “I was one and a half to two years there and then I went back to the Netherlands and started following a training in advertising,” explained the artist. Meanwhile he kept developing his style further. Soon he started to work for the Dutch government. He went studying with Freek Henkes to see more details about the financial and commercial aspects of the art business. On his twenties, he had his first exhibition which was a huge success and from then on art became definitely part of his life.
Heidweiller keept working in large scale collages. Then he begun to use silk. This innovations achieved such a huge success that Heidweiller decided to start his own studio. Not only to develop his own work, but also to be inspired by some important Dutch artists such as Paul Blanca, Herman Brood and Peter Klashorst. The studio was called Amsterdam Modern.
In his new works George Heidweiller returns to his roots. Painting in India, to where he returned, was purifying. Amsterdam as new place offered peace. It leads to self-reflection and a greater insight. Not the everyday reality but the painting itself is a major driver. The attention to the matter, the accuracy of the paint flow, the improvisation collage, the intense use of color… Everything in the new work of George Heidweiller testifies a large inner strength. The City-scapes have become sensitive landscape revealing a subtle ‘urban sophistication’.
Today, his work is known, among other things, for the cityscapes. Recently, a number of new cityscapes by George have been included in our collection. By using different printing and painting techniques all works are unique. The artworks are made on thick paper with rough sides and finished with liquid gloss for a truly stunning effect!
