Heinz Marzohl


His profound knowledge of reprography, typography, serigraphy, materials, and colour theory was a valuable springboard for the painter, printer, and advertising specialist Heinz Marzohl to enter the world of art painting. In over 25 years, countless sketches and studies were produced and, building on these, elaborate, profound but mostly colourful paintings on canvas. Many of these paintings are characterized by personal, emotional experiences.

Heinz Marzohl found inspiration for his designs in nature. For example, lines of force from animal bodies, drawings on butterflies, weathered wood grain or primeval structures and cracks from rock cliffs of storm-tossed seashores. Over the years, the struggle for vivid lines and forms to depict touching sceneries has led to an independent, unmistakable pictorial language.
