Story
Tagline
I make things up and imitate art.
Introduction

My name is Oliver Wetter, head of Ars Fantasio.
I am a visual artist from Germany. I love to make up things and imitate art. 

My profession involves doing book cover art, poster designs and advertising illustration. Besides this duty I´m a lecturer at the IBKK art institute in Bochum/Germany, where I teach digital painting.

In my spare time I write about art, marketing and technology on Ars Fantasio and for Altpick Connects

In times between commissions I regularly create exclusive and personal works for early adopters on my venture Patreon.com/fantasio

Contact me for a noncommittal quote on your project.
