VISEone approaches his art, and his life, with a restless desire to learn.

As a kid growing up in Germany, he sketched on everything. He taught himself to draw by studying the sketchbooks of his late friend, mentor and collaborator, the late cartoonist, Ralph Ferres*. Later he learned to put his characters up on walls under the tutelage of a french graffiti artist.

The constant throughout VISEone’s evolution as an artist was his friendship with Ferres. The pair collaborated on two resin figures, Sea Hunter and Sad Dragon. Produced by Patch Together, Sea Hunter (2008) and Sad Dragon (2009) sold out to collectors worldwide. In the spring of 2009, VISEone was chosen as the only German artist to participate in Disney’s Stitch Experiment 626 Art tour. His Cutie Monster custom lead to another project for Disney and was displayed at an art exhibition in Hong Kong.


When he got asked to design a mascot for a german designertoystore (THINK-PINK-CELLE.de) VISEone taught himself ZBRUSH and created a character which was later produced as a limited edition resin figure - released at the end of 2010.


After exhibiting at NYCC 2010 VISEone got featured in TOPPS official STAR WARS GALAXY SERIES 6 and created die cut cards for the artist sketch section of this series released in 2011.


Also in 2010 VISEone began creating his celebrated Comic Stripped series.
These mixed media works use a combination of collage, clay and acrylic paint to transform toys into sculptures. By collaging the figures with comic strips, VISEone frees the comics from their linear confines, and the resulting characters are rich with possibility. Always looking for the next challenge, VISEone focused on form and shape for his follow-up series. The Tubes series is a playful meditation on the origins of life, with dripping characters emerging from tubes of paint. Both The Comic Stripped series and Tubes series were embraced within the toy niche, as well as crossing over to influential design media like Notcot and Design You Trust.


In July 2011 OUTLAND DESIGNERTOYS in Amsterdam featured VISEone's first soloshow „COMIC STRIPPED“ – showing off a big selection of his customized COMIC STRIPPED toys and TUBE creations.


In 2012 VISEone is one of the featured artists in THE ART HUSTLE trading card series and teamed up with FLYING LULU who produced and manufactured his first production vinyl toy the TUBE MONSTERS which are based on his well known TUBE CUSTOMS featuring his own character style.


After the big success on his TUBE MONSTER release at NYCC 2012 he is currently working on new characters to join and expand the TUBE MONSTER SERIES and also got signed at OUTSMART ORIGINALS as a featured artist for a future project yet to be released.


When he’s not vigorously absorbing new knowledge, VISEone enjoys cartoons, characters, art, comics, toys, amusement parks and the Disney classics. He believes his art is facilitated by indulging his inner child, and he finds inspiration everywhere.


He lives and creates in southwest Germany.

bio written by Jeremy Brautman . jeremyriad.com


* Ralph Ferres was a close friend and mentor to VISEone. They knew each other for over 20 years and VISEone learned a lot from studying Ralph's sketchbooks while they went to the same school back in the days.. They always dreamt on working together as creatives and finally in 2007 they started collaborating. Ralph did the sketches and VISEone illustrated or worked on 3D models to bring their characters to life. They brought out 2 limited editions of resin toys - released by Patch Together, USA and had plans for more and upcoming projects. Unfortunately Ralph died in a car accident on his way to a meeting with VISEone.
VISEone was always inspired by his friends art and skillz and so Ralph's art will continue to live through VISEone's work.
