Uwe Geest was born in Hamburg, he spent his childhood in Dahme, a village on the German Baltic coast, before returning to his hometown, where he studied architecture, which ends in 1966. In 1968, he moved to Barcelona where he currently lives. He has exhibited in Spain, Andorra, France, Holland, Britain, Venezuela, Morocco, Germany, Japan and Canada.
Uwe Geest’s paint responds to a writing of the soul through which he conveys some experiences, some atmosphere, a set of experiences that either blend the past and present in a constant value of art.
His approach to painting is predominantly sensory, skin, enveloping. Each painting represents an exploration and a trip to the world of textures, shapes and colors. The lack of visible argument in his work lies within the so-called lyrical abstraction.
Some images that fade into the monochromatic depth, finely pasted, harmonics, combining the sublime and expressive and as in the Elegies of Rilke, they tell us about the nature of unattainable feelings.
In the background they are pictorial Elegien.

Everything is inside or outside the drawers. The universe is one of the things that is inside and outside. So, inside.
If I were a stone, I would be everything, but my mind separates me.
Projected outside my side, undermined by sensations and reasoning that empty the glass, it waits that from the other side, flowing towards the level that separates me from the rest, everything soaks inside, as the liquid that obeys Archimedes’s law: what empties me and what fills me.
