"Life is an eternal experience. Thus, I always love to try and perform new
methods, as a person and as an artist. I see art as my laboratory.
With my artworks I wish to create a free space for individual
interpretation. My objective is to stimulate people under a given topic; to
shake them up and made them escape from their daily routine.
Therefore, I prefer to paint in public spaces, where the interaction with the
observer has the greatest impact.
I use a multitude of techniques and materials: Spray cans, Acrylic paint,
Markers, Stencil technique, Video art, Styrofoam Relief paintings and
sculptures as well as luminous objects out of wood and glass.
For more than six years I have been experimenting with the light painting
technique: A unique form of painting, in which I use a flashlight to create
a chemical reaction on special coated canvas. The green-yellow glowing
reaction is visible for around 2-7 minutes, depending on how dark the
space is. With this technique it is possible to create a truly living painting.
It is thereby interesting to create an interactive experience with the
audience. I create storylines, which are then illustrated and brought to life
with this medium. As part of this performance I joggle with luminous
objects, which in the dark seem to fly through the space.
I was born at the capital of Austria, Vienna, where I spent my postnatal
years. At the age of nine, I was uprooted to France to my mother’s
hometown spending ten years in the suburbs of Metz, whilst commuting
back and forth to Vienna, where my father still lived.
With sixteen, I had my first impulse on Graffiti writing. I was not spraying
to tag my name everywhere. I rather had a goal to become an artist.
Due to frequent travels and admiration for different cultures, I have been
able to experience a variety of styles while maintaining my personal point
of view.
Nowadays I live and study in Vienna; a contemporary city full of urban and classic flavor in architecture, art and music, as a living monument of a mixed culture, in which most of my projects are currently taking place."
