I was born in 1965 in Cologne, Germany. After my high school years, I appreciated school training as "Technical Design Assistant" (Degree with special honour). 
Afterwards I studied »Visual Communications« with focus on graphic design.
My first »Daily Paintings« were created in 1991 as part of his artistic thesis »November Tree«. 30 large-format collages (70 x 100 cm) showing photographs, sketches, paintings, inspirations, and descriptions of his experiences during November 1990. 
After graduating, I managed the graphics dept. of a medium sized fair construction company in Aachen. At the same time the opportunity arose to take over a classical painting studio in the nearby industrial yard. 1994 I started my self employment as a freelancer and art director. As a result, unfortunately the canvases from then on remained white.
By 2002, I developed more and more artistic photo confrontations with people, places, moods and events. The resulting »memories« live on in some of my actual paintings.
Following were numerous job-related relocation between Aachen, Bonn and Cologne. In the picturesque and cultural lively smalltown of Marburg, I restarted painting and drawing in May 2002. I rented a romantic painting studio in a former carpentry in a village near Marburg. There I tried to precise a personal style of calligraphic nude portraits. My cityscapes reflect a distorted and often mysterious unreality. Together with some fellow artists and designers, I did some group exhibitions in Marburg.

2009 followed the unexpected settlement to Hanover. 
Inspired by the Amerivan daily paintng movement, I started my daily weblog »A Stiller A Day« on August 15th, 2011. From then on a »Daily Painting« gets online. 
My daily paintings are acrylics, watercolors, sketches or oils in various sizes. 
These paintings show my personal view of the world. Like studies, moments, experiences or reminders. 
Since 2017 I am the leader of the Kunstfabrik Hannover, an art academy with about 60 different workshops and classes with teachers from all over Austria, Swiss and Germany.

Commissioned Work

Cancelled for the moment

Your wall is bare?
You like my paintings?
You want your »own a Stiller«? I can paint in smaller or larger formats and I like this square thing. Alternatively, I prefer extremely elongated horizontal or vertical formats. I do also paint commissions in the size of the daily paintings.
Most of my work is created in acrylic on canvas. Feel free to suggest a motif or a subject to be painted.
I gladly finish your portrait
 or a painting of your city, your house or your yacht. Usually I do not paint your pet. And I will not paint male nudes. Well, and usually I don't paint from your photos as my personal style of taking photos inherits the latter painting.

But first of all, please contact me by email. Then we should get together and discuss everything else. Generally you should leave me enough time for a job. It is the nature of things that I feel free in the artistic realization and the choice of materials.
The price for a commissioned painting depends on cost, material consumption and size. For an acrylic painting on canvas [60 x 60 cm / approx. 23.6" x 23.6"] please expect a minimum price of EUR 360, - EUR (500 $). Kind regards - Stiller
