Since 2008 Oliver Wetter has worked as a freelance illustrator specializing in cover art for editorials, book covers, magazines, and concept and genre art, creating mainly figure and portrait illustrations.
He was educated at the arts center Ibkk in Bochum, Germany, where he received a degree in airbrush design. There Oliver studied under Roland Kuck, an internationally known artist, who specializes in illustration and airbrush art, with an emphasis on portrait painting.
Oliver Wetter's artistic approach is to mix the common with the uncommon and digital with traditional, and to experiment within those four elements. Over time, he has broadened his range of expertise into other artistic disciplines such as photography, sculpture and digital post-production.
Some of Oliver's artistic influences are Gerald Brom, Todd Lockwood, John Jude Palencar, Don Dos Santos, Michael Parkes, Hajime Sorayama, Ashley Wood and John Foster.
Oliver is currently working on a personal series titled, The Trans-genetic Meta-human, realistic portraits of mutants, that look like genetic experiments such as - humans combined with plants, animals, or even machines.
In another series titled, Fantasio Girls, he pays tribute to different style pinup artists utilizing various techniques to better himself as a digital painter.
Oliver feels, "There is no art without practice, one should practice pure exploration into the deep boundaries of the mind to redefine the possible."
