"Everybody is crazy, but me" april - july 2016

Born in Czechoslovakia, he died in 2002.

Nicolas von Heim joined the resistance during the Second World War but was caught and sent to a prison camp by the Nazis. During the Siege of Leningrad, where he was forced to fight at the German side, Von Heim was taken prisoner by the Russian army and sent to Siberia to work at a butchery. He escaped during the 50s and fled to France, where he settled in Saint-Tropez. Von Heim created mystical and fantastical paintings with remarkable precision, straight from his own imagination. He was a member of the Vienna School of Art History, and several of his paintings are exhibited in museums in Stuttgart and Munich.
