Klaus Brandner (born December 11, 1965 in Klagenfurt am Wörthersee) is an Austrian painter, graphic designer and sculptor.

Biography

Brandner grew up in the Austrian city of Klagenfurt. After graduating from Viktring Secondary School in 1985 with a focus on visual arts, he started organising his first exhibitions in 1986. He still lives and works in Klagenfurt today. He is a member of the Austrian Association of Visual Artists.[1]

Works

Numerous paintings and graphic works mainly present in art galleries in German-speaking countries, but also in the rest of Europe, bear testament to the artist’s perpetual creativity.[2] Klaus Brandner’s paintings consist of oil on canvas and his graphic work focuses on screen printing.

The artist’s little sculptures (up to 50 cm tall) are made out of clay and his colossal statues (between 4 and 7 m tall) consist mainly of metal, concrete and plastic materials.

His sculpture "Ideenfänger" (The Idea Catcher) that he created in 2014 is permanently exhibited in the sculpture park Los Cardones of the Gernot Huber Foundation in Tenerife.[3]

In 2015, he realised the artistic design of the Kleine Galerie, situated in Triester Straße in the Lower Austrian city of Neunkirchen.[4] His 8-metre-tall sculpture "Der große Wächter" ("The Big Guardian") is also exhibited there.[5]
