Rudolf Lichtenegger

Freelance artist since 2011

National and international exhibitions, including in the USA, Europe, Dubai, and Bangkok. Numerous publications, published in Italy, Germany, New York, Austria, Switzerland, and Russia.

He does not follow trends; he defines himself through his passionate homage to life and to art in and of itself.


. Paintings & Sculptures

real - surreal - sculptural - fantastic - haunting

The essence of art should probably always be to delight the viewer, to give him support, peace in a hectic time, but also to stimulate him to look at himself and his environment with different eyes and to think about what is happening around us outside the many direct stimuli of our time in large and small, in deep and shallow, in dark and bright moments - often barely perceptible, but still present.

An universe of such moments can be found in his paintings: Each individual work of art reflects a large or even a small experience, always captured in his unique way of carefully dealing with what he has experienced and capturing the feelings on a canvas, in order to give the emotions a worthy frame and to communicate them to those around him, the viewers of his works.
