Biography

Following his debut solo exhibition “Shoe Shufflers” at Coda Culture in 2020, Heizer took part in the group exhibition "Body as a Dream at Art Agenda", and was included in the artist line-up as part of OH! Open House, Singapore and International Art Fair, ArtMoments Jakarta Online 2021. Most recently, Heizer presented his solo exhibition, "Another Round" at Cuturi Gallery, where he stages imagined scenes encompassing a tableaux of archetypal characters found in a fictional bar.


Heizer paints the metanarratives of the caricatured figures in the state of pain, despair, and hopelessness. These characters exist in an abject reality ruled by their own logics, appropriated from various fictional novels and cartoon shows. He captures the behavioural and the performative to correspond with his sustained investigation into the social organisation of our contemporary society.
