Wiehan de Jager is a conceptual artist, visual communication designer, illustrator, and part-time lecturer working from his home-based studio in Riebeek Kasteel. Wiehan explores the process of mark making through his work. He experiments with the juxtaposition of man-made traditional media such as pen and ink, screen-printing and painting techniques, with the sometimes strict, controlled yet serendipitous digital illustration processes and artistic expressions. The results are sensitive, controlled and detailed, balanced out with bold organic moments.
Wiehan holds a BA Degree in Visual Communication Cum Laude from the Open Window School of Visual Communication. He has participated in various group exhibitions in South Africa, more actively from 2015 onwards.
