Kati Heck (born 1979, Düsseldorf, Germany) is an artist based in Antwerp. Though her work spans sculptural installation, short film, and photography, she is best known for her large-scale paintings. 

Heck has shown work internationally in many exhibitions including Art Brussels at Galerie Annie Gentils, Bonds of Love at John Connelly Presents in New York and 59 STE Badischer Kunstpreis at Museum Baden. She is represented by John Connelly Presents in New York, Tim Van Laere Gallery in Antwerp and Marc Selwyn Fine Art in Los Angeles.

Early life[edit]

At the age of 19 she came to Antwerp, Belgium to study fashion, but chose painting instead. Her classical training in painting can be seen in her work, which is often very figurative.
