Classical paintings in old masters technique & Dietro Aria Technique
I am burning for everything with highest quality, and therefore I am a great admirer of the old masters and in generally the classical way of painting. Since a years I have learned more and more every day from the masters and got specialized in the old masters technique as well as in the renaissance technique.
So here is a big welcome to you at my page, and I hope you will find joy and inspiration in my paintings.
I have a classical academic education in art and architecture, which I received at the university in Vienna Karlsplatz near the famous Sezession. Vienna and my art teacher gave me great inspiration, but also trips to Venice, Malta and St. Petersburg, where I found a lot of insights in the paintings of masters like Caravaggio, Raffael, Titian, Botticelli, Bellini just to nam a few and the Italian Renaissance in generally, and in particular in the way Leonardo da Vinci was painting.
Over the years, Leonard has always given me new clues and lessons to develop and learn. Only through close observation and persistent practice and improvement can mastery be achieved. Everything else remains superficial and shallow - not to mention abstract painting, for which I pay no tribute.
Thats why I invite you to take a look at my Leonardo da Vinci Experiment, which took me over 18 months of hard work to get this painting done. I have dedicated a separate sub-page on my homepage to this project and a film is being planned.
Also be invited to find out about the Dietro Aria technique, which I invented and which is a further development of Leonardo da Vinci's Sfumato technique.
Currently I am working on the new traveling exhibition "Modern Madonnas", which will be shown in the most important cities in Europe at 2022. Together with Dieter Hanf, an art photographer from Germany.
Update Sept. 2021: As it seems the corona situation with is delta Variant makes it very unsafe to plan this event and so we unfortunately diced to move the date to 2022.
