The WISE Lounge is excited to continue showcasing the work of local visual artists from East Vancouver and beyond. The project aims to increase exposure for participating artists, reinforce positive associations with the local arts community, and increase lounge ambience.
We are happy to showcase Stephan Wehner in the WISE Lounge for the month of February. An official launch will take place Sunday February 4, 2018 featuring a night of music and entertainment.
Musical performances by James Paterson Trio.
Stephan Wehner was born in Fontainebleau, France. He grew up in Germany and Belgium and now lives in East Vancouver with his partner Tamara Dakic, and daughters Isabella and Astrid. With a Masters of Science in Computing and a Ph.D. in Mathematics he works as a software developer and usually devotes most of his free time and mental energy to math problems.
Over the last 25 years of research he has come across a number of mathematical visuals and displays which struck him as beautiful, interesting and intriguing. He has now adapted these to design and create colourful paintings, mostly acrylics. While at it, more promising compositions suggested themselves and so he worked these out as well.
The overall results are such that the math connections are always present (and by the way, totally original). But they can be ignored and when they are disregarded, then the pictures speak of life itself. One has to see it to believe it.
He calls the collection “Colourful Bling.”

I am the happy owner of two of Stephan’s early works. If they are any indication of what’s to come, I want more. — Harvey Yen
Wehner’s insights into the human condition are truly visionary. No two brush strokes are the same, like the magic of snowflakes dancing. — Gerry Siemens
