Biography - Von Miriam Volmert M.A. Hamburg Translation by

Bernd Heidenreich was born in Warburg (Germany / Westphalia) in 1951. After his apprenticeship as a decorator Bernd moved to Bamberg / Bavaria. Here he soon specialised as church painter and discovered his interest in the fine arts. Close contact with established local artists like the painter and graphic artist Joerg Sherenkamp led to first drawings and oil sketches. In 1975 he was invited to participate in the great exhibition 450 Jahre Bauernkrieg / The German Peasant's War: 450 Years.

Already his affinity to realism began to take shape. In the eighties he worked as an artist in Berlin and Düsseldorf intensifying his study of the tradition of European Realism. This was also a time of intensive travel in Spain and Italy as well as visits to other continents namely Asia. As a result he transformed his sketched impressions of daily life into oil paintings, intensely expressing the inner dynamics of human life. A subject that dominated his artistic contributions to the Warburger Kunstmarkt (The Warburger Art Market) in 1988. Here his concept of realism, which is focused on the nameless human and reflects on the difficulty in determining modern life was clearly visible. Subsequently Bernd moved permanently to Warburg where he is further refining his unique style and accepts commissions of portraits and landscapes. He is actively participating in many projects and exhibitions.
