Roland Heyder was born in Singen (Germany) in 1956. He has been active as an artist in the professional field since 1980. His work reflects his great love for expressive autonomy and there is a lot of attention for detail in his work.
“It is hard for me to discuss my work because I don’t like the idea of influencing someone by explaining my own thoughts and opinions concerning my art. Each painting can either put you in another world, in the middle of a story or simply be the expression in symbols of my inner feelings. In terms of technique, I generally work on canvas prepared with at least two coats of gesso. I do a pencil sketch on paper, then on the canvas before painting with acrylic and then in oil.” – Roland Heyder
