Udo Hohenberger


Udo Hohenberger was born in Spittal an der Drau in 1967. In 1992 studied painting at the New Vienna Art School, where he has been a lecturer for nude movement studies and experimental painting since 1999.

Influenced by his teaching assignment, drawing became more and more important in his painting. With gripping graphic lines, Hohenberger manifests people on paper and canvas floating in the infinite space of color. The viewer's gaze loses itself on the levels of what has already disappeared and holds on to the powerfully defined. The figure, immersed in its entire form, is suspected through a veil.

As one of the most important representatives of the second generation of Austrian post-war art, the artist took part in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany and Austria and was represented alongside artists such as Maria Lassnig, Hermann Nitsch and Arnulf Rainer at international art fairs, including Beijing in China.
