About the Motor Sport Artist
Heinz Jürgen Wagner
Many Formula One drivers, like Michael Schumacher, Häkkinen, Berger, and of course a lot of VIPs are owning an original picture of Wagner. The special painting technique, which was developed by Wagner himself, catches the thrilling atmosphere of high-tech racing cars in a unique way and documents a piece of history for the posterity.
Beside his artistic abilities, his technical talent as Formula-3-mechanic helped him to look behind the scenes of the world of racing. That has been a long time, and it was hard to find the racing drivers on the courses of Le Mans, the DTM up to the kings class of motorsport: the Formula 1.
Nowadays, everybody in the inner circles knows the artist inside the hidden world of Formula 1.
The artist's studio is located in a halftimbered house. He is been living and working here since 35 years. The artist was born in Marburg April 14th, 1954. As the son from a acknowledged artpainter (holding the Kulturpreis), his way of life was apparent clear. As soon as possible, his parents supported his talent of painting. Of course, they became a little bit sceptical when his passion showed that everything in the pictures turned around the motorsport.
A visit at Heinz Jürgen Wagner is like a timetrip through the automobile history of the last 25 years.
Inside a creative chaos of colors, brushes and canvases, the provisional aroundstanding oil paintings, artprints, rough drafts and photo studies tell the lightning-fast history of motorsport through the eyes of an artist.
Personal photos of Wagner with national and international persons of racingsport history, H. J. Stuck , Keke Rosberg, Ayrton Senna and the young Michael Schumacher, showing the relationship between the artist and the - for "normal people" - mostly unreachable persons around the world.
