Information on my work (Artist Statement):
Rene Siepmann (born on November 1st 2002), is a contemporary self- taught painter who lives and works in North-Rhine-Westphalia (Germany) and portrays / explores the depths of what it means to be a human.
Siepmann’s work is showing us what exactly makes us human. His paintings show our deepest fears, our deepest needs and what we are currently capable of now , were then and will later be. His diverse approach to those topics allows the viewer to experience a unique journey through our minds and reveals the deepest layers and aspects which define the homo sapiens.
His personal style pays homage to the ancient ways of storytelling, by using symbols and colors like several ancient cultures did, comparable to the hieroglyphs of ancient egypt. His paintings possess a contrast between ancient stylistic devices and modern topics which are colliding in one new painting. Siepmann’s work can also be seen as a painted mirror which shows the current state of today’s world and how it could be in the future.
Throughout the late 2010’s Rene Siepmann made several International appearances provoked by collaborations with several artists on an international basis. In 2019, Rene Siepmann and the British pop-artist Luke Gardener teamed up for a collaboration called ”D.R.I.P”. During this collaboration 4 digital artworks which contain a mixture of both of their art styles were released exclusively on both of their Instagram accounts. Another tremendous project followed in July 2020 when Siepmann teamed up with Kenny Elrod, a singer who rose to fame through TikTok. He designed a cover art for his single “Back for the Summer” which was released on July 4th.
In the year 2020, Rene Siepmann made his first appearance in a gallery, where prints of his current work are being sold.
Several collaborations and online exhibitions later, Rene Siepmann is a self-taught painter who is producing and exhibiting abstract art, by using acrylic paint and framed canvas for his paintings. Siepmann and his work is constantly evolving and always seeks dialogue with the viewer.

It just needs to be made to it”
