W. R. Hell (born in1957) is a sculptor and painter. He has lived in München for many years where he frequently exhibits his pieces.
His father was well known in the Chiemgau area as a sculptor in wood. Through his mother's family he is related to Dominikus Zimmermann, the architect of the world-famous Wieskirche and an eminent stuccoworker of the so-called School of Wessobrunn.
The artist W. R. Hell cannot be defined by a particular style. In his different works of art he quite consciously chooses a wide variety of forms, styles and approaches.
His intensive study of Kandinsky and Barlach, the masters of Cubism, and also the stucco works of his ancester Dominikus Zimmermann gave him important artistic impulses.
His dancing practice constitutes another decisive source of inspiration: "Due to my background as a dancer (Butho and Creative Dance) I am able to transform the movement of music into sculptured movements; the forms of music find an expression in my artistic work.“
