Allow Encounters – Austrian Painter Ludwig Drahosch

Allow Encounters – Austrian Painter Ludwig Drahosch

When he was nine years old, Ludwig Drahosch created 200 anatomic drawings kicking off his career as painter. With 14 he would spend long hours in the Vienna Kunsthistorische Museum copying old masters like Rubens, Rembrandt and Goya. At the age of 20 he had found his own style. He studied with Brauer and Hundertwasser and added philosophy to his autodidact portfolio.

His surrealist work tries to capture the spiritual impulses which we occasionally feel but cannot make tangible. To paint in a meaningful way, according to Drahosch, you need to allow encounters and grab them rather than let them pass casually. Drawings are like words that have a meaning but recreate themselves with each combination and interpretation.
