My work focuses on trauma recovery, introspection and the human urge of finding a place in the world: fragmented stories for fractured minds.
I predominantly focus on figurative strategies in drawing, painting and code. I programmed videogames (at Rockstar Games) before studying fine arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, which influenced the topic of my PhD thesis (painting and digital technologies). I live and work in Vienna/Austria, and collaborate with galleries in Austria, Germany and Spain.
Next to my art practice, I am active in various projects that aim to make art world dynamics transparent — and more welcoming: whether in regular talk and networking meetings (“JOMO – Joy of Missing Out”), a podcast (“Kunst und Klischee”), my YouTube channel (“On Doubt in Creative Practices”, which accumulated over 8 million views and over 60k watch minutes by 2022), or in various lectures and workshops.
I curated over thirty exhibitions since co-managing the transmedial art space mo.ë, established an active writing practice (check out my “Handbook for Emerging Artists — over fourty chapters are online, with over 50k views as of 2022), and teach at Art School Vienna and at the virtual art school “Pushing Colored Dirt”.
I held lectures at workshops at places like the Royal Institute of Art (Stockholm), Gage Academy of Art (Seattle), University of Northern Colorado, University of Applied Arts Vienna, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, or the New Rochelle High School (New York).
