Aaron Scheer is a Berlin-based German artist who uses technology to creation abstract prints or ‘digital paintings’. He creates digital works on his computer, as well as various apps on an iPhone or an iPad by mimicking brushed paint effects and expanding the field of their applications, among other techniques.
Through his process Scheer explores the possibilities of new technologies by working with and subverting them, while the technological layering of marks in his completed works expands the notion of what painting can be in the digital age.
Aaron Scheer was born in 1990 in Ahlen, Germany and is based in Berlin. He received a B.Sc. from Münster University of Applied Sciences, Münster, Germany in 2015 and an M.Sc. from School of Design and Crafts, Gothenburg in 2018.
