atelier22 with gallery are art spaces for fine art, photography and interesting conversations.

“Art is for everyone,” writes Jerry Saltz, art critic at New York Magazine and Pulitzer Prize winner, in his book “How to be an artist“.

Making art means being creatively free, regardless of your school or academic background. It is a creative process of one’s personality and life experiences, an act of transformation from the unconscious to the conscious. Fostering creativity, for example, in children from an early age increases concentration, self-confidence and develops their intelligence, especially when they are encouraged in what they do by family, school and the environment.

In addition to my artistic work, it is important to me personally to motivate people to become creative, to escape from everyday life, to experience freedom in creative work and to discover new skills.

Gmunden in the Salzkammergut, the area where my atelier22 and gallery are located, is definitely worth a visit. – Meeting people from different corners of the world and offering the opportunity to get in touch with creativity or to deepen existing skills, e.g. in the studio or outdoors, en pleine air, on topics such as painting and photography. Interesting conversations at Lake Traunsee, e.g. philosophizing about the meaning of life or having conversations about art, is a part of these encounters.
