Oliver Hoffmeister

Newcastle & Gateshead

Oliver Hoffmeister is a painter-printmaker who has shown nationally. Through painting as image-making, Hoffmeister strives to create a practice which focuses upon the obscure nature of the imagined image, with particular reference to the artist’s own conceived imagery.

Through the use of motifs, painterly marks and framing he attempt to loosely define space and form in an effort to create indeterminate scenes through which vague narratives can be constructed. The imagery pulls influences from a range of sources, yet always uses everyday experiences from himself as a starting point. More recently he have attempted to delve into his creative process and re-think his paintings, the imagery he make and the manners in which he work. He is currently on the Royal Drawing School’s drawing year.
