Specialty: Fantastic fine arts and illustration
|My name is Oliver Wetter, born 1978 in Trier / Germany. Drawing was always a natural form of expression for me since i can think.|
In 2007 i finished 4 years of study and 2 years masterclass by Roland Kuck with a diploma degree in "Airbrush -design" at the arts center Ibkk in
Bochum / Germany and specialized in illustration.
Since 2008 i work as freelance illustrator and artist, doing book and magazine covers for European und International publishing houses,
as illustrator i´m experienced with conducting working relationships via phone and e-mail, my rates are reasonable.
Among my artistic influences i count: Gerald Brom, Todd Lockwood, John Jude Palencar, Don Dos Santos, Michael Parkes, Hajime Sorayama, Ashley Wood and John Foster.
My artistic approach is to mix the common with the uncommon and digital with traditional, and experimentation within these 4 elements all over.
With time i´ve broaden my range of expertise into direction of photography, sculpting and digital postproduction.
Currently i work on personal series: "The transgenetic -metahuman", are realistic portraits of mutants, that "look" like genetical experiments such as - humans combined with plants, animals, or even machines to make mankind survive on another planet.
Another Series is called "Fantasio girls" where i collaborate with models and photographers in tribute to some Pinup masters with different technique to
better myself in digital painting.
There is no art without practice, the practice of pure exploration until the deep boundaries of the mind to finally redefine the possible!
