About The Artists
Anna Proc began her art career working with internationally renowned artist Gabriel Heimler in Berlin. In 2010 they relocated to Wellington, receiving residency by virtue of their talent.
In Wellington they are best known for their mural ‘The Mover’ on the wall of the Museum Hotel. Wellingtonians chose ‘The Mover’ as the second best public outdoor artwork of 2011.
Gabriel Heimler studied art in Paris before moving to Berlin. His mural on the Berlin Wall, ‘The Wall Jumper,’ catapulted his over 25-year career as an artist. He is noted for thought-provoking paintings that feature social and historical themes. Heimler's art has been sold through Sotheby’s in New York, as well as by galleries in Berlin, Paris, Frankfurt and Brussels, among others. His ‘Wall Jumper’ is one of the most visited historical monuments in Berlin, a part of the East Side Gallery, and has 3 mln visitors per year.
Anna Proc began working with Gabriel Heimler first conceptually for the Art Express, a travelling exhibition, that was shown in Berlin, Budapest and Essen, then, as painter, she worked with Gabriel on restoring his mural’ The Wall Jumper’.
The couple's work is inspired by their ongoing exploration of New Zealand, together with an eclectic mixture of German expressionism, cubist perspectives and pop art. Their paintings are flamboyant, colourful and packed with a distinctly New Zealand narrative within an international context. They underline individuality while showcasing a wide range of emotions.
Images from both the Berlin and Wellington murals are featured in the newest editions of the Lonely Planet guidebooks, 'Discover New Zealand' and 'Berlin Pocket'.
Heimler & Proc are represented in Wellington by the Kiwi Art House Gallery and in Berlin by the Ladengalerie.
