Welcome to the official Homepage of
Caricaturist and Swift-Cartoonist Uwe Kolkmeyer!
Performing since 1995 as a professional entertainment artist, giving with my caricatures enjoyment to all visitors and spectators, attending a variety of events all over Germany. If it is a business-event, or any other occasion and celebration - my performance always is and will be an amusing attraction.
As a special portraitist for caricatures and cartoons, I need only a few minutes, to present an expressive face-image. In spite of the over-accentuation, typical for caricatures and cartoons, it is very important to me that each portrayal can easely be recognised as ones identity.
In contrast to most of my colleagues, who specialised themselves as pure portrait artists, I have a strong affinity to the so-called head-feet images. This form of portrait-caricature was wide spread during the 19th century. With that, as you can see in my above shown self-portrait, the drawing shows a small body under a dominant head. In this case a fast performed caricature can show further amusing features.
Still drawing the eyes and nose, I'm tempting my models to reveal personal preferences, interests, hobbies, inner-callings, vices, virtues and other particularities. Integrating the information given with humor in the caricatures. The small body is shown in a fitting action. This conversion varies between charming impertinence and cute frivolity - leading to an immence entertainment attribute for the spectators and the person being portrayed alike. More than often the motto of the event is immortalised.
All over Germany and international my caricature performance will convince everyone, be it at company events like an exhibition, a congress, a presentation, a business-opening or promotion, but also at a ceremony as a gala-performance, an anniversary due, a wedding party, a birthday party, a company fete or christmas and new year parties. All these occasions will take profit from the fascination of a caricature. As well as lots of fun during the event, friends, guests and/or customers are taking home a caricature worth a lot personally - a remembrance for ever.
I'm flexible with the arrangements to suit the occasion in which I participate. After numerous appearences as caricaturist and swift-cartoonist in varieté-engagements, I possess vast experience as a show-cartoonist, able to perform as an artist on stage.
I am looking forward to consult you regarding an induvidual arrangement for my appearance as caricaturist and swift-cartoonist, taking part in your coming event. Thank you for being interested and lots of fun with my caricatures!
I present a selection of portrait-caricatures of celbrities and public figures.
As Swift-Cartoonist please find example cartoons, created during numerous Events.
More caricatures and impressions of an appearance as a caricaturist and swift-Cartoonist can be watched in a video.
Because of travelling a lot internationally and country wide, from Hamburg to Munich, from Cologne to Berlin, please understand that I cannot take on commissions drawing portrait-caricatures from photos furthermore. However, I linked colleagues within this homepage, who would be happy and look forward obtaining a "photo commission".
