Oliver Wetter was born in 1978 in the oldest city of Germany, Trier.
In 1993 -1996 he made a successful apprenticeship to become a painter. After years of autodidactic training with the physical airbrush, he decided to study at the IbKK in Bochum/Germany. From 2002 to 2007 he studied Airbrush-Design and did his master in illustration. Since 2009 he is working as a freelance illustrator and creates cover artworks for international renowned publishers and authors.
In 2011 he released his first artbook entitled Fantabulous Visions*, which shows the wide variety of his commercial work, but also the collaboration efforts with models and photographers from around the globe. In his blog (http://fantasiox.blogspot.com) he writes about his process, as also about artist and freelance related things, like marketing and publication.
He participates in exhibitions and conventions, on-and-offline. His work is regularly published in annual artbooks and magazines, like Heavy Metal Magazine, ImagineFX, 2Dartist Magazine, Exposé, Exotique and some titles from Ilex Press. He recently was awarded with an excellence achievement in Exposé #8 (Ballistic Publishing).
