artist Bernd Wachtmeister belongs to humans, who
concern themselves intensively with itself and their environment.
Many of his feelings,
impressions and thoughts find their expression in his colorful digital
work of art. They come to light, so to speak, through form and colour.
It might not be immediately apparent when looking at his pictures that they have involved a high degree of effort on his part. It might also be possible that, at first sight, they seem somewhat immature, light-hearted, maybe even playfully naïve.
However, when reflecting on their meaning as expressed in their titles it will become evident that there is an ironic, critical depth to works that, on the face of it, may appear to be straightforward and friendly.
While art is for Wachtmeister both a calling and a passion, he devotes himself professionally to visual communication. Since 1990, he has worked successfully as a freelance graphic designer, mainly in the areas of advertising/promotion, publishing and new media.
His special interest is the illustration as well as the design of signets (CI), posters, websites, packaging, brochures and many other means of graphic communication.
In the course of his studies he has been awarded prizes in various design competitions and have become aware that he has a particular talent in colour composition.
