Uwe Czerwinski is an abstract painter from Schwerte, Germany. The ideas for his works arise rather spontaneously and at the same time the first, the original idea for a new project, is often no longer present in the finished painting.

How did you get into art?

I got dragged to a Turner exhibition in 2001. I who had never been involved with art before... I was converted from there.



How would you describe your style? 

Chaotic.. And hopefully to the point at the end of the painting process.

What makes your art special?

I work almost entirely from the gut. Plan little... That makes it quite exciting. Sometimes frustrating, sometimes I feel like a king.

How do you go about developing your work?

It basically boils down to "trial and error" until I finally see the work.

Who or what influences you?

Monet, van Gogh... Turner, of course... later Nolde and especially de Kooning came along. And many others... But the longer you paint, the more you detach yourself from your "heroes" and become yourself... What you always was - just lacked the courage to show it.
