Cody Heichel - Columbus Open Studio & Stage


My home studio is located directly across from Thompson Park in the Short North. You will find plenty of on street parking available in front of my home and surrounding streets. Once you arrive, a representative from Brandt-Roberts Galleries will greet you and direct you to my basement studio. A variety of completed works will be displayed, including watercolor paintings on both paper and panel, oil paintings, and graphite drawings. I will also have works in progress on view to provide further insight into my artistic process.





Columbus-based watercolorist Cody Heichel uses bold colors and high-contrast tonality to create atmospheric interpretations of daily and recognizable scenery. Heichel aims to capture the mood and movement of his subjects through quick, spontaneous brushwork. Heichel has exhibited throughout Ohio, including Brandt-Roberts Galleries, the Schumacher Gallery, and the Riffe Gallery.


Urban cityscapes, rural settings, and national and international locales provide the inspiration for my work. Often, mysterious figures occupy the focal point of the composition I create. It is through their individual appearance and body language, as well as the language of their surroundings that help the story of each scene unfold.
