Beyond Paradise – Jenseits des Paradieses – Axel Feuß

Figurative or abstract – Sebastian Heiner has yet to decide on an issue which has polarised art in the 20th century. Since the early 1990s, he has painted groups of highly abstract figures who communicate with one other with vehemence and sweeping gestures, figures from all imaginable social layers, in periods ranging from mythological times to the present, and from indeterminate regions of the world.

Moloch City - The book

In 2017, the painter Sebastian Heiner (*1964) worked for six months in Shanghai – an overwhelming megacity. Together with the photographer and designer Michael Wruck, he produced Moloch City:

“For the first time in the many years that I’ve known Sebastian Heiner, I experience the daily environment in which his works are created: the ritualized walk to the studio in the North Bund Art Zone, the preparation of a canvas, the mental warm-up, and finally the actual act in which an image is created.”
