Artist Wolfgang in der Wiesche -1
“Someone once told me that I had to decide between art and music. I realised that both are vital for me and no one can tell me to choose. I have played music from an early age and had classical training on violin/viola, piano, harp. Guitar and other instruments, I learned by myself. I studied art and played music in bands. I started composing film music when I went travelling. Then came theatre music and soundscapes for installations. And free compositions. I have been with it until today. Everything in my work has become more diverse. I work as a painter, a graphic artist, a photographer, a media artist, a composer and a musician.
I lived in China, India and Germany for more than 10 years, worked as a technical director at international music festivals, had my own radio show on NDR, Hamburg, on rock and underground music from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and more.
With music I learned to cooperate with others. I was disappointed that this was not a matter of routine in artistic work. I don’t compete much and don’t understand competition well.
Diversity doesn’t threaten me, I find uniformity and thoughtlessness threatening.”
