Artists portrait of Ole West

Ole West

  • Born: in Wedel

Art of the coast

The painter and graphic artist Ole West, born in 1953 in Wedel, Schleswig-Holstein, settled as a freelance artist on the East Frisian island of Norderney in the North Sea in 1984 after studying graphics and extensive study trips. The range of subjects covered by West's graphic art, which includes both hand drawings and prints, is broad. In addition to traditional genres such as landscape painting and still life, he is primarily interested in all subjects of the maritime. Again and again he returns to the depiction of lighthouses, fish, cutters, fishing cottages and other typical motifs of the North German coastal region. Wherever sea and land meet, this landscape becomes an artistic challenge for him.

If one looks for models, then the comparison to Horst Janssen and to Edward Hopper forces itself involuntarily. To the one he owes ideas for the technical realization, to the other contentwise inspirations. From these influences, West developed over the years a completely independent visual language, in which he merges his coastal motifs with the imaginary space of land and sea maps collage-like.

Ole West's works have since become so popular in the Ruhr region and Bavaria that the concept of a northern German "art of the coast"" is almost inevitably associated with his name.

To our knowledge the art works on this page were created in the years from 1992 to 2005.
The pictures are predominantly assigned to the art direction others.
The art works of the artist are dominated by the colors pastel, gray and white.

Art Prints

We deliver exclusively art prints from well-known art publishers in brilliant quality, such as the art print »East frisia« from Ole West. Classic art prints are normally produced by offset or screen printing. In this case, often also spot colours and embossments are used.

Stretcher on canvas

Our canvas prints are handmade in our own workshop. Either the canvas print or the art print laminated on a canvas is stretched onto a quality keyless frame. Perfectly wedged and provided with a suspension, the canvas image can be hung directly. Optionally, we also offer each canvas picture framed, i.e. with floater frame. »Moin coast« of Ole West as a canvas image also beautifies your home.

Framed pictures

We frame almost every picture. You can choose from many different frames. Passepartouts are just as much a part of your choice as are various options for surface protection. So »It will be a beautiful day« of Ole West becomes a highlight for your living room or bedroom.
