Born in Beverwijk, The Netherlands (1963), of Surinam parents, at the gnarled edges of the ever burning and smoke spitting towers of the steel factories of ‘Hoogovens’, George took a solid art education (painting and graphic art) at the Royal Academy of The Hague. After his art education George Heidweiller had his wild years working with Dutch famous “rock and roll junkie” Herman Brood. This gave him a base on which he began to devolved his own authentic style which, mixed with his numerous faraway, adventurous and inspiring travels (Australia, Thailand, India, Asia, Mexico, United States) gave him his constant restless look into the world through a lens that opens every one hundredth of a second, misses nothing, and composes his urbanized landscapes. Travelling through India and Australia, making the road movie, Simpson Desert, with Harry Riedl, George picked up his vibrant color use.
Back in his studio in Amsterdam George Heidweiler started to use silk-screens in his paintings and collages. This resulted in his own silk-screen studio producing his own work as well as the work of his mentor Herman Brood. Part of George Heidweiller’s constantly developing world of art was starting a dance club and Art Society called “Loos” which worked as a platform for dance and performing arts.
Moving to Madrid, Spain, George Heidweiller worked for Mundo Magazine and Art4use, designing their cloth line, while his paintings were on show in galleries in Madrid and Ibiza. After doing commissions for Tommy Hillfinger, Paris, London and New York, George returned again to Amsterdam.
