Classical Paintings In Old Masters Technique & Dietro Aria Technique
I am burning for everything with the highest quality, and therefore I am a great admirer of the old masters and, in general, the classical way of painting. For years, I have learned more and more every day from the masters and got specialized in the old master's technique as well as in the renaissance technique.
So here is a big welcome to you on 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 I also tripped to Venice, Malta, and St. Petersburg, where I found a lot of insights into the paintings of masters like Caravaggio, Raffael, Titian, Botticelli, Bellini. Just to name a few and the Italian Renaissance generally, particularly 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.
That's 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 to this project on the home page, and a film is being planned.
Also, be invited to learn about the Dietro Aria technique, which I invented, and further develop 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 in 2022. Together with Dieter Hanf, an art photographer from Germany.
Update Sept. 2021: As it seems the corona situation with its delta Variant makes it very unsafe to plan this event, we, unfortunately, decided to move the date to 2022.
