About The Artwork

About Heli-Art: Action Painting with a Helicopter HELI-ART is a spectacular form of action painting and is unique in the world. The resulting artwork (so called "Heli-Paintings") is at its heart nothing more than the traces of flying in the truest sense of the word. The German artist Heiner Boerger brings his artwork into being by using a helicopter. This extraordinary form of production enriches contemporary art with a totally new and wild perspective. Liquid colors, a high powered helicopter, the blustering down wash, gently controlled skids and pure nature are the contrasting artistic ingredients necessary to create this stunning form of art. Initially the canvasses are firmly anchored to the ground and soaked with liquid colors. After which Heiner impressively flies over them with the helicopter. He hovers, pauses, lands, cavorts, allowing the bright colors to truly vibrate. Landing a heavy helicopter on a flimsy light-weight canvas requires aeronautical skill combined with the highest standards of precision. The fact that a deeply moving emotional picture is created during this process, is living proof of master craftsmanship at its best. Heiner´s art productions must be regarded as a mirror and image of our times: highly engineered and alive with superlatives.

Dr. Heiner Boerger – Artist and Pilot, born in 1960 in Duisburg, Germany. His education in the field of communication and design at the Hochschule der Kuenste (Academy of Arts) in Berlin (amongst others with Prof. Wolfgang Krebs) was completed in 1986. At this time only the western part of Berlin was free and lay like an island in the midst of the communist ruled GDR. Heiner Boerger was inspired by the artistic and liberal environment of West-Berlin. He was present in Berlin on November 9th 1989 and experienced first-hand the falling of the wall and the start of a new era of liberty and freedom for all Germans. After his dissertation under Prof. Posner-Landsch, Boerger founded an event agency in Frankfurt, Germany. Here he used his creative talent to work as a producer and director of live performances, film productions and music productions. In 1999 he successfully completed the training required to become a helicopter pilot. In early 2004 after several years of flying, Boerger fulfilled his greatest dream: he received the inspiration to build bridges and combine art with flying. Influenced by the universal approach of Renaissance and inspired by modern performance artists such as Pollock or Christo he began to create a new and unique form of art: "HELI-ART". In so doing the artist creates spectacular work using a helicopter at symbolic locations around the globe.
