  • Color Theory &...

    Workshops & lectures can be organized in the whole world, or in my studio in Vienna.
    A class can be for one peroson, or a group.

    Composition, construction, color theory, perception and perspective are most important parts of the artist language alphabet.

    For example, you cannot write a good poem in French if you do not know the alphabet and its vocabulary. If you have a talent for poetry, you must first learn how to use the alphabet and language to magically spin the words. If you want to break certain rules to create something new, you must learn them first.

    Unfortunately, inspiration does not always guide us. To be a professional artist means being able to create in every moment, without waiting for a muse’s kiss. I will show you in a game of transformation of forms and colors how to create in a special way and professional way.
    The theory classes are available as one-to one classes, or online classes.
