Eberhard Hueckstaedt

Eberhard Hueckstaedt was born in Potsdam, Germany in 1936 where he survived the World War II bombings of Potsdam and neighboring Berlin. He lives and works in Germany. Hueckstaedt’s painting style employs a unique combination of watercolor, charcoal and plaster creating transparencies and variation in stroke and line. While enjoying great success as a professional artist, traveling and studying throughout the Soviet Union in the late 1970s, the young artist struggled with the oppression of communism. He discovered that a file had been created marking him as a dissident. Because of this, he relocated his family to West Germany in 1985 leaving behind an entire body of work. It proved worthwhile though as he was able to create new pieces that gained him exposure and recognition throughout Central Europe. As a young man, Hueckstaedt participated in the restoration of churches throughout East Germany. He attended college for applied arts in Heiligendamm and fine arts in Dresden. The State Gallery for emerging art in Frankfurt first acquired his paintings, after which his career skyrocketed. He has been featured in many exhibitions in Europe and the United States. His work is included in many collections worldwide such as the Berlin Albertinum Museum. Hueckstaedt oftentimes paints faces that inspire him such as artists, composers, actors, actresses and authors.
