Jan Ziegler was born in 1974 and grew up in Southern Germany. He graduated his design studies in 2000 and has been working for numerous renowned and international fashion and lifestyle brands since then. Aesthetic perception is central to his professional environment, which is characterised by rapidly changing design processes. In his endeavour to systemise visual perception, he depends on subconscious aesthetic decisions.
In his artwork, Jan Ziegler is exploring beyond well-practised design habits, using perceptive processes based on visual sensation. In his abstract paintings, landscapes and portrait studies he is exploring unconscious perceptions of visual attraction as well as the concept of intuitive beauty aside normative ideals.
Jan Ziegler’s artworks have found their way into private collections in Europe and the USA. He lives and works in Berlin / Germany.
