The paintings, drawings and etchings of German artist Martin Weyers have been influcend by the art, poetry and philosophy of German Romanticism, but also by surrealist and expressionist painters of the twentieth century such as Max Ernst or Paul Klee, and the artists of the Italian transavantgarde movement (Enzo Cucchi and Mimmo Paladino).

However, the original source of Martin Weyers' artworks is the Mythos itself, the very deep well of the past, Thomas Mann is referring to, when he asks: "Shall we not call it bottomless?" (Joseph und seine Brüder)

For Martin Weyers, the purpose of the arts is to create a contemporary form, where the timeless truths of the Mythos can shine through.

Weyers is one of the founders of a new group of German artists that is trying to renew contemporary arts through the powers of spirituality and transcendence. Their first show has been taking place in the gallery of the Neuer Sächsischer Kunstverein in Dresden in 2014/2015 the same city that is indissolubly associated with Caspar David Friedrich (who was a member of the predessor organization Sächsischer Kunstverein), but also Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and the painters of the German expressionist group Die Brücke.
