Werner Fismer was born in Cape Town and lives in Kimberley, South Africa. His artwork takes the form of digital paintings (produced through use of a graphics tablet and software), ink and pencil illustrations and sometimes a combination of these. They depict surreal characters and occasionally landscapes, stylistically influenced by various strands of popular entertainment. Starting at a young age in traditional mediums, Werner’s current skill set is mostly self-taught through experimentation and practice. He describes the content of his art as introspective, often drawing on emotional reflections.
