Content

Austrian artist Manfred Wakolbinger, born 1952, trained as a metal worker and tool maker before turning to art. Following first steps in jewelry design, he moved on to sculpture and photography, later also to video art. Many of his often voluminous sculptures were created for public spaces. The submarine world has captured his particular interest in photography and video. Wakolbinger’s art is organic and conveys an inner poetry, yet it remains enigmatic even when it becomes concrete and figurative. This book features a selection from his work in photography and sculpture since 2012.
