Art shop in Heidelberg

I visited Heidelberg about 8 years ago. In the long traffic-free street in the centre, there was an art shop that sold paintings etc., they seemed to specialise in art by an american artist whose paintings were mainly, i think, of New york, and consisted of brightly coloured cut outs pasted on to a background. I know it's a long shot, but can anyone help with either, the name of the shop, or the artist?

The street was the one with the statue of Bunsen. If you stand with your back to the statue the shop was to the left about 100metres ( I think) and on the right hand side.

yes, weird I know. I couldn't afford to buy one at the time, but I've been thinking about them a lot - can't get them out of my mind- but can't remember his name or the name of the shop!!!

I know its a long shot, but maybe someone who lives in Heidelberg can help

Hello,

the street you are thinking of is "Hauptstrasse". The art shops rather close to the statue of Bunsen are:

* Galerie Calumet Nuzinger, Märzgasse 18

69117 Heidelberg

This might actually the one you are looking for as the have quite a few US artist. You will find them on their website -> Link "Künstler".

* Kunst am Theaterplatz, Hauptstrasse 106

69117 Heidelberg

Fon: 0049 6221/166044

Fon: 0049 6221/8734450

Thank you so much Carolina, I'll check them all out!

I don't think it was the first one. It describes itself as being in an "antiqu building" . The place I'm looking for was just a shop with large glass windows.

Thanks anyway!
