Alex Diamond

 

Alex Diamond: The Milkman Of Human Kindness. Multi-layered woodcut, acrylic paint, resin, 115 x 85 x 9 cm (45” x 33,5” x 3,5”), October 2015. Click for more information.

 

‚Alex Diamond‘ was initiated as a stand-alone art project by Jörg Heikhaus in 2004. Although it has outlived its original intent, it has become his stage name as an artist.

Essentially being a determined and straightforward storyteller, most of his artwork can be seen as an exploration of contemporary culture and its recurring social recognition patterns, with strong references to popular content and aesthetics. 

Known for skillfully employing a vast variety of different techniques and crafts over the years, the majority of his oeuvre today consists of his distinctive trademark woodwork: multi-layered, meticulously and highly detailed sculptural woodcuts, blended with diverse painting and pigmenting styles.

Jörg has been an artist since 1987. He founded the heliumcowboy gallery in 2002 and worked as a curator for large art projects. Today he spends most of his time creating his complex woodwork or rare and intricate drawings and is only excecuting a representational and consulting role within the heliumcowboy organization.
