About Heiko Hellwig

Delight in colorful and intricate marvels of nature! Artist Heiko Hellwig perfectly captures every last detail of butterflies, koi fish, and flowers.


Hellwig’s art is proof positive that even the smallest things can make an enormous impression. The butterflies in his Black/White series are only a couple inches long at most, but with extreme precision, Hellwig transforms them into large-format works of art. Just take a closer look at the antennae, their metallic shimmer perfectly captured in a range of luminous colors.

Clear Contours and Artistic Details

In the Koi series, Hellwig depicts the cherished Japanese fish in a unique way. We see the fine scales forming intricate patterns on these creatures. Clearly defined contours are characteristic of Hellwig’s work. In these detailed photographs, you can see the influence of years of experience in product and advertising photography.

Now you can experience the same minimalistic and exact aesthetic in the world of plants. In his new series, Blossom, the artist examines a flower’s gently curving petals. “I am consciously focusing on a single perfect flower instead of a colorful, overflowing bouquet,” says Hellwig, who currently lives and works as a freelance photographer in Stuttgart, Germany. His subject, the vivid Gerbera daisy, only grows where it is sunny and beautiful. In Hellwig's art, it brings some of that light into your home!

Photography is meditation. Through meditation, I can see the true essence of the subject in front of me.

Meditative Art to Dream By

Heiko Hellwig was born in 1960 in Wuppertal, Germany. He views his work as the extension of the classic still life, with a meditative focus on the essence. Every one of his artworks reveals the artist’s patient and observant spirit. With his perfectly composed photos of creatures and flowers, he addresses the ambivalence between life’s beauty and finitude. And he does this by preserving the fleeting moment for all eternity. By 1991, Hellwig had already opened his own photo studio and has been putting his visual vocabulary to work for international companies including BMW, Bosch, and Lufthansa ever since.
