The Artist

He was an artistic multi-talent, published numerous works as himself, but also had several aliases. In the mid 60s Wiedmann developed his own and unique painting style - the Polykon painting - in which he also created „The Wiedmann Bible“. He was an internationally recognized artist. Throughout his career he worked with many famous artists such as Louis Armstrong, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, etc. Wiedmann won several awards, including the “Cross of the Order of Merit” for Art and Culture. He died on June 21st 2013 aged 84 in Bad Cannstatt, Stuttgart.

The World’s Longest Painted Bible

For decades the world’s longest painted Bible was hidden in an archive. A mission brought it back to light: „The Wiedmann Bible“. Willy Wiedmann worked for 16 years on 3,333 hand-painted illustrations in his own unique Polycon style, which he combined in a single Leporello - the only one of its kind. He believed, a picture is worth a thousand words. For this reason he was passionate about his ecclesiastical paintings. His intention was to create something entirely new - something unprecedented. Willy Wiedmann did not only want to reflect the Holy Scriptures, but also include messages about what humans have done to the world. Additionally, Willy Wiedmann wished to have a global impact by making it accessible to all, including those who are unable to read. What is intriguing about this Bible is that it does not follow any stereotypes or regulations.
