About The Artwork

Because of "higher powers"… the revolution was cancelled. I don’t say much more… What remains is a pissing day. The revolutionist was hidden for some weeks in a secret place. Now he is back with trembling knees. To put it clearly: In the USA communism is forbidden, pissing is allowed at home... ° matt acrylic paint on a raw fleece structure ° gray edges ° polyester-fleece mounted on a wooden frame ° 100 % handmade

The artist grew up quite sheltered in the home of his grandparents in Vienna. His father's family, however, came from Serbia, where they had survived a camp of the communist dictator Tito after World War II, severely traumatised. His grandmother became his most important caregiver and from her he learned to speak, an old German, "Palatine" dialect... His education as an artist was in parallel to his job, because he actually is a mechanical engineer by profession. His most important teacher was Emilio Vedova, a famous Italian painter of the Art Informel movement. As a result he had exhibitions in Vienna's inner-city galleries at quite a young age, but then nevertheless chose a career as an engineer. In 2010, he was committed to a psychiatric hospital, and since then he has worked solely as an artist. He had several exhibitions, including a solo exhibition in 2015 at the Tacheles Gallery, which is run by the Protestant Church. He became well known through his online presence, where he published humorous pictures under the heading ART BRUT&HUMOR - Eating ART with a Spoon. In 2014, he was invited to Saatchi Art's Art Advisory programme. He has sold many large-scale paintings to international collectors, and his paintings have been used as stage decorations in television shows. His work is a humorous response to the traumatic experiences of his early childhood and social issues of modern life as well...
