Impressions: Destiny | Galerie Schwien, Malente | 2022
Colorful, dancing storms of fate sweep across the land, carrying a scent of artistic freedom that one can take in with relish. Steffen Schwien’s works electrify the viewer, awaken innermost questions and leave him wondering. The epochal paths of this artist, burning with passion, are forever linked to the dynamic structures and emotionally charged color gradients inherent in his compositions. On May 13, 2010, an accident abruptly changed the life of the then 17-year-old. Twelve years later, on this fateful (2nd birth) day, he opens his own exhibition space. This special event is celebrated with the exposition of artworks that open the cloud seas of colorful imagination and let the recipient melt away animated and full of emotions. Contrasting and diverse as life. Deep and rich in artistic treasures of all kinds. Unseen things are revealed, milestones are set anew. As a recipient, you have the feeling that you are diving into a shimmering, shining world of art, full of joie de vivre, whose colorful horizon gently covers your own and into whose soulful hands you gladly place your fate.
“Schwien is a driven man. He seems incredibly young and has already achieved so much at just 29 years old. His large-format paintings full of colorfulness, dynamics, emotion and energy sell internationally.” (Ostholsteiner Anzeiger)
“His (Schwien’s) color-explosive paintings have been shown in exhibitions worldwide, and now he opens his own gallery in Malente on Friday with the exhibition Destiny.”
