ART EDIT PRESENTS PIONEERING FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY TO LIVEN UP YOUR WALLS.

Australian artist Lars Heldmann likes to say that he’s seen the light, but preferred to stay on the dark side. Born in Germany, the artist dabbled in drawing, sculpture and colour theory at the School of Art in Vienna before branching out to pursuits of philosophy and contemplation in a monastery – and eventually returning to art.

Now, Lars works as a professional product designer, using his eye for colour and composition to create vibrant works of striking beauty. The artist’s process relies on technology he created himself, letting a high-tech pigment ink printer ‘paint’ the image. This hybrid of man and machine allows for the creation of images that display the finest possible gradients and micro details.
