Heiko Muller's art comes "from an urge to explore. I like the countryside. I like a good view." To imagine and express this fascination in the extended world, Muller likes to tap the lines linking religious icon art, renaissance painting and comic culture. "I am particularly thrilled by the kind of spiritual terror you find exressed in the paintings of the old Flemish masters," writes Muller. His work is full of mystery and a fun kind of darkness. Muller is based in Hamburg, Germany, but has shown work from Estonia to Chicago.
