Wieland Payer

Wieland Payer has been working with pastel painting for more than a decade and has presented this technique with a new look. He succeeds in doing this through their unusual application to large formats, brilliant mastery and careful further development of the technology, through drawing virtuosity and a special feeling for fascinating topics.

Wieland Payer (* 1981) studied at the Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein Halle (diploma, 2009), the Accademia di Belle Arti Rome (Erasmus grant) and at the Royal College of Art in London (scholarship from the Studienstiftung and the DAAD, Master, 2011). Works by the young artist are in renowned public collections.
