Lives and works in Vienna, Austria
Born in Vienna in 1989, Wolfgang Matuschek studied architecture at the Vienna University of Technology in 2015, Sculpture at Escola Superior de Belas do Porto in 2016, and painting at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in 2018. He has exhibited in solo and group shows throughout Europe, and in Tokyo and Los Angeles. Matuschek creates wonderfully imaginative drawings of fantastic geometries, often near monochrome but with such rich depth of color as to make them feel real nonetheless. Many of his drawings engage with the notion of spatial framing, with unconventional perspectives, comic book style bordering, and foreground obstruction or cropping of the central image all confronting the viewer with the artifice of his otherwise bewitching worlds.
