Born and raised in Kiel, Jan-Ole Schiemann studied Fine Art at Kassel Academy and later graduated under the teachings of Professor Andreas Schulze at Duesseldorf College of Art. Schiemann has become one of the most prominent young artists of his generation with shows in Seoul, New York and Los Angeles. 

Schiemann’s work oscillates between abstract and figurative elements, comic drawings and constructed surfaces, gray values and paint mist surfaces. As with classic cartoon production, he uses primarily black ink applied to unprimed canvas. Superimposing multiple transparent layers creates an unusual sense of depth. Each additional plotted layer breaks up the original context piece by piece and creates new relationships between the visible background and image foreground. The viewer is encouraged to actively move around the image, in order to comprehend this themselves. 

Jan-Ole Schiemann challenges the tradition of paint on canvas through collage-like techniques, constructing works of a psychological and playful nature.
