Biography   Gottfried Helnwein


Gottfried Helnwein (born October 8, 1948 in Vienna) is Austrian-Irish and has worked as a painter, draftsman, photographer, muralist, sculptor, installation and performance artist, using a wide variety of techniques and media. Helnwein is concerned primarily with psychological and sociological anxiety, historical issues and political topics. As a result of this, his work is often considered provocative and controversial.

Helnwein studied at the University of Visual Art in Vienna (Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Wien). He was awarded the Master-class art prize (Meisterschulpreis) of the University of Visual Art, Vienna; the Kardinal-König prize and the Theodor-Körner prize.
