  • Franz Wolf

    Franz Wolf


    Austrian painter

    Franz Wolf was born in 1954 in Dornbin Austria and started to intensify with the art of painting in 1969 at the age of 15. The versatility of this art and life cosmopolitan can not be overseen. Franz Wolf, the traveller and the seeking through the time dimension and culture sphere expresses his impressions thorugh graphics, oil paintings, wood carving and mixed techniques. The precision pf the Berlin School in his brushwork paired with his ideology of the world results in metaphers full of hidden secrets. His work leaves the viewer with a lot of space to reflect and think about, his messages are deep and rich of substance.

  • Sid



    Austrian Pop-Art artist.

    Born 1964.

    The Work

    The biggest compliment Sid could ever receive was made by a university dean, who asked him to hold a lecture about pop-art to his students. While observing Sid’s work, however, he realized that this kind of art is not possible to teach. The complexities of his ;multifaceted and deep work are not something one can learn how to reproduce. From those words one would assume that the work is  hard to access, and that it is open for understanding only to a very small and highly erudite audience.

    However, the opposite is true, because the work has wide audience appeal, like a beautiful musical motif, easy to understand but hard to compose, or like beauty itself, impossible to define, but easy to see.

    Investment recommendation

    Sid is on his way to conquering the art world. His art works are unique and reasonably priced. No one buying them will ever regret it.

  • Danijela Gracner

    Danijela Gracner


    Serbian painter

    Born 1983.

    The Work

    In her studio, which she and her husband have turned into a paradise of sculptures and paintings, one cannot help it being impressed. Two kindred souls inspiring each other.

    The first question arising after seeing their work is ‘which museum owns them?’

    With her larger pieces, a series of colossal and heavy paintings, illustrating black figures on a black background, Danijela has achieved something fascinating, almost unbelievable:  under daylight or with proper lightning, the paintings will throw a bright and vivid shine onto the observer. 

    A broad variety of smaller-scale paintings testify to Danijela Gracners’ versatility and playful ease for developing new work.

    Investment recommendation

    Danijela Gracner is an insider’s tip. She is modest, a little reserved and young. So far, the prices are still low and do not reflect the true worth of her fabulous paintings.
