Stefan Heilemann’s pictorial works seem to cry, laugh and scream at the same time – after all, “Heile” is reluctant to be restricted by the reality we know.

“Heilemann’s works are masterpieces of digital image processing and like to cloak all-too-obvious beauty in the morbid garb of transience while drawing parallels to old-masterly, iconised works of art history.”

Born in Stuttgart in 74, he worked as an art director for many years until he turned his full attention to his passion as a photographic artist. Since then, his works have adorned numerous album covers and artworks by international bands such as Lindemann, Pain, Epica, Epica and many more: Lindemann, Pain, Epica, Kamelot, Kreator, Oomph! or Nightwish.

His photo book “Velvet Guts” was honoured with the German Photo Book Award 2019 and his work has been celebrated throughout Germany.
