Like what I am creating? Buy me a coffee, please.

Hi, I am Stefan, published hobbyist and sort of a part-time fine art painter from Germany, doing traditional paintings because it is my passion. In the past I also supported certain small publishing houses and fan groups with my works, doing digital illustrations as well, but today I fully focus on my expressive realism (or post-impressionistic) painting style and classic themes like landscapes and figurative art. I love to explore new styles and techniques, but my heart truely belongs to bold and thick brush strokes of oil paint.

BTW my profilename "Art deWhill" here is my old nick I had back in the days when I was a busy part of the Star Wars fandom. See my page at the German Jedipedia Wiki.

If you are interested in buying original artworks, prints or licensing agreements please feel free to contact me.

Please check out my online shops for posters and canvas prints:

This is just some sort of personal gallery to exhibit a selection of my works.

Thanks for looking around! I hope you enjoy my paintings just as I had enjoyed creating them. Live is boring enough...

So ... back to fan art :) Hell yes, that is what I like to paint: nudes and fan art LOL Sure, to me Star Wars Episode 8 is one of the biggest bullshit movies I have ever seen (just my opinion) but Star Wars is so much more. I am addicted to
Fanart day 😀 it is not easy to find an audience for my unique and unusual expressive realism style Star Wars Art, so If you like my ways of painting please feel free to share my paintings in your fan groups! Thank you very much, my friends
