Wiehan de Jager is a contemporary artist, visual communication designer, illustrator, and lecturer working from his home-based studio in Riebeek Kasteel, north-east of Cape Town, South Africa.     Through his work, he explores the processes of mark making, experimenting with the juxtaposition of various media such as collage, printmaking techniques, drawing, painting, as well as digital media. The versatility of paper, and the possibilities one can have when working with a combination of various types of paper, mediums and techniques are revealed and celebrated.    Wiehan’s work focuses mostly on themes such as the abstract interpretation of texture and forms in landscapes, the interaction between nature, man-made objects and environments and the diarizing of divine significance. The expressions are layered, structured, emotive and abstract, as if captured in motion. His work is sensitive, controlled and detailed, yet balanced out with bold, organic and graphic moments.     Wiehan holds an Honour’s Degree in Visual Communication from the Open Window Institute. He has participated in various group exhibitions in South Africa.
