Brief Curriculum Vitae

For me art signifies to develop consciousness by designing. The first creative contact with pencil and paintbrush was at the age of approx. 13 years. I was an enthusiastic graffiti drawer, not for vandalism reasons but because I liked the filigree pencil flow. The professional high school in Weiden i.d. Opf. with his design sector taught me my set of tools. Dynamic, contrast and contrast gradient, as well as the first knowledge in colour apprenticeship.

By constant research for new ways of expression I have arrived at a vivid design philosophy. Thereby, experiencing with all perception levels, as well as tracks of life as variable design elements are playing an important role for my design philosophy. This moving away from the static art is of course strongly marked by my studies of landscape architecture and my current work as landscape architect.

With my final thesis (perceiving, designing and experiencing water) I dealed for the first time deepening with a vivid design element, the water. Important for me ever since is the "Concept Life".

Won competitions

At the Atelier Dreiseitl I gathered important experiences about planing landscape architecture, public sites, water and art features. I worked on several competitions that we won. One of them was the Cultural Park in Tijanjin which is going to be the new cultural center of Tijanjin, China.
