Wiehan de Jager
Wiehan is a contemporary artist, visual-communication designer, illustrator and part-time lecturer. His work includes the interpretation of texture and forms in landscapes, and the interaction between nature, manmade objects and environments. The expressions are layered, structured, emotive and abstract, as if captured in motion.
Wiehan explores the process of mark-making through experimenting with the juxtaposition of traditional media such as collage, printmaking and painting techniques, with the sometimes strict, controlled yet serendipitous digital-illustration processes and artistic expressions. The results are sensitive and detailed, balanced out with bold organic moments.
He holds an honours degree in visual communication, and has participated in various group exhibitions in South Africa and abroad.
