Oliver Hoffmeister


Oliver Hoffmeister (b.1995 Chesterfield) is a Newcastle based painter-printmaker. His work focuses upon the obscure nature of the imagined image, with particular reference to the artist's own conceived imagery. Attempting to create works that could be seen as ‘oddities’, he wishes to conjure a sense of uncertainty that leaves the viewer in a state of flux.

Since graduating in 2018 from Newcastle University with a first-class BA Hons in Fine art, he has shown work in a multitude of shows including ‘The Ingram Collection Young Contemporary Talent Award’, Cello Factory, London, UK (2018); ‘The Middlesborough Art weekender’, MIMA, Middlesborough, UK (2018); ‘The Graduate Art Prize’, Exchange House, London, UK (2018); ‘Ghosts That Live Amongst Us’, The Warbling Collective, 155a Gallery, London, UK (2020); 'Glossary of Etching', Northern Print Studio, Newcastle, UK (2020). Alongside this Hoffmeister has undertaken multiple residencies including a public art commission in conjunction with Kielder Arts and Architecture, and was awarded The Hatton Prize in 2018 for the excellence of his work in the Newcastle degree show.

More recently he has been working in collaboration with Berwick Visual Arts to produce his first solo show, outside of Newcastle upon Tyne, titled 'Hide and Seek'. Alongside this, Hoffmeister is a co-founder of 'Minutes Exchange', a by-post charitable project in which we auction works of arts from a plethora of artists from all over the UK.
