Artists portrait of Ole West

Ole West

  • Born: in Wedel
Born in 1953 in Wedel, northern Germany, the painter and graphic artist Ole West settled on the North-Sea island Norderney in 1984 after completing his graphic arts studies and extensive study trips. He became a freelance artist whose works cover a wide variety of topics. His graphics, consisting of drawings by hand as well as prints, reflect traditional styles like landscapes and still-lifes, as well as maritime subjects, his special field of interest. He always reverts to portraits of lighthouses, fish, trawlers, fishermens' cottages and other typical scenes of northern Germany's coastal region. Wherever sea and land meet, the landscape becomes an artistic challenge to Ole West. Thinking about who inspired his paintings, names like Edward Hopper or Horst Janssen come to mind. One of them is responsible for ideas and their technical conversion, while the other inspired the contents. From these influences West has developed over the years his own artistic language in which he combines an imaginary space of maps and navigational charts in a collagelike style. Today the works of Ole West are so well-known even in Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia, that the term of a Northern German "Coastal-Art" is immediately connected with his name.
