About the Exhibit

German artist Willy Wiedmann spent 16 years creating a visual narrative of a Christian Bible in his own unique style, called Polycon. This style was greatly influenced by his lifelong love of music, as well as by some of the major 20th-century, European, avant-garde movements such as Surrealism, Dadaism, Cubism and Abstract Expressionism. Wiedmann’s ultimate purpose for his work was simple: to engage people visually with the Bible.

“The ones who are afraid of reading the Bible because they often do not understand the written text, can benefit from it…”

– Willy Wiedmann
