Ernesto Heen was born in Schleiz in Germany. He lives and works as a full-time artist in Hamburg where he has his studio in the city centre close to the beautiful Alster lake.
Especially the last 10 years living in France and England have brought him very close to classical art while having had the chance to study the works of great artists and concentrate on classical drawing and painting.
He is closely connected with fellow artists, gallerists, and private collectors to further develop, enhance and showcase realist artwork.
Ernesto’s paintings are characterized by carefully rendered compositions that enhance the presence of the painted object. He applies classical painting methods to create those stylistic overtones that can alter a scene into a new reality.
