Hi,I'm an artist specialised in makeup, special effects, sculpting, mask-making, and various forms of art. In December 2023, I had my first exhibition at the City Gallery Vienna featuring my sculpture series called 'ASPHYXIA', which means a lack of oxygen in your lungs - leading to panic an death. The name represents the sculptures resembling faces with covered noses and mouths. Some appear like ethereal beings rising from frames, and I even displayed a dual sculpture that seems to float. A few of them glow in the dark. Crafted from epoxy resin, it took my quite some time and experimentation to achieve the desired effects. Manipulating the material to mould, stretch, bend, or flow depended greatly on room temperature and working time. I even modified the frames to hang them as envisioned. Each sculpture required approximately 10 to 12 hours of dedicated work. I adore the brilliance and elegant appearance of each piece and how they still look kind of haunting. Exploring the diverse possibilities offered by colours and pigments is truly my passion. In the past, I've restored wax figures, crafted silicone premature birth simulators and renewed old dolls and mannequins. I enjoy exploring new materials and experimenting to discover what I can create. All my skills eventually led me to art, as I've always seen a strong connection between art and craftsmanship. Whether it's creating realistic fake wounds or crafting art in vibrant forms, every step has led me closer to the next project or idea. Creating ASPHYXIA was a beautiful opportunity for me to showcase my work outside the film industry. As an artist, I'm often not sure what my next project will be, but I'm excited to embrace new challenges and see where they lead. So thanks for checking out my work and I hope you enjoy it.
