Jan Ziegler was born in southern Germany in 1974. Today he lives and works in Berlin. Since completing his design studies in 2000, he has worked for well-known international fashion and lifestyle brands. Jan Ziegler's experienced flair for design is also reflected in his work as a freelance artist. His abstracted landscapes and portrait positions are characterized by a unique exploration of free forms of expression.

As a visual kind of person, Jan Ziegler began exploring art and design at an early age. In 2011, he began working on his independent artist profile and using the medium of painting to turn snapshots of human emotions into something tangible. His abstract works intuitively appeal to the viewer's unconscious perception, while primarily male portraits fascinate through their mysterious presence.

In his painterly works, Jan Ziegler pursues a concept of subtle beauty that is beyond established ideals. In his works, he often uses researched photographs as templates, but also afterimages of random encounters, the mood of which he projects on canvas with acrylic paint. Landscapes seem to be vacuous and hermetic, male faces appear magically lost in reverie, sometimes near stereotypical with their facial features merely hinted at, leaving room for the observer's individual associations.

Jan Zieger's work has been on display in international exhibitions and can be found in private collections throughout Europe and the United States.
