Meet The Artists

  • Maximilian Fohn

    Maximilian Fohn

    Biography

    Austrian painter.

    Born in 1965 in Bregenz. Studied architecture at the Technical University of Vienna and painting and graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Numerous exhibitions in Austria, Switzerland and Taiwan.

    The Work

    It is quite appealing to focus on one painting of Maximilan Fohn, to see the perfect pairing of shape and color, a trait reminiscent of his studies of both architecture and art. The experience becomes, however trilling when looking at a larger body of work, as each piece fits so well with the rest.

    Following his work can become a riveting and addictive experience.  The endless play of color, combined with architectural elements makes one never want to leave the artist’s studio; his work is versatile, complex and deep. Once one starts to know more about who Maximilan Fohn is, the desire to go back and get lost in the fascinating sensations generated by his work becomes irrepressible.

    Investment recommendation

    The prices are reasonable and the work should considerably rise in value.

  • Petr Fidrich

    Petr Fidrich

  • Goran Cpajak

    Goran Cpajak

    Goran Cpajak was born in 1963. in Prijepolje, Serbia. He shapes stones and metals in line with natural harmony. He forms the stone in specific themes, human fears, impressions, questions, mistakes and aspiration. He considers stone as a material with many emotions. It is a mental fight and Cpajak shows his strength by bending the stone. He has been awarded international prizes and is considered as one of the most significant sculptors of our time.  His work is part of collections worldwide and has been, amongst others, exhibited on occasion of the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008.

    He worked for a long time at Pietrasanta, a small town in Italy, known for it's caves which together with nearby Carrara is recognized as sculpting capital of the world.

    Presently he teaches on Belgrade Faculty of Applied Arts, divides his life between Serbia and Italy, enjoys spending time with his four children and dedicates himself to sculpture.

    Biography

    Goran Cpajak was born in 1963. in Prijepolje, the youngest of six artistically gifted children. Only he and his two years older brother Djordje have chosen art as their life callings. Upon finishing Deign Art School in Split and graduation from Faculty of Applied Erts in Belgrade, his interest for sculpture brought him to Pietrasanta, a small town in Italy, known for it's caves which together with nearby Carrara is recognized as sculpting capital of the world. In that cosmopolitan and artistic atmosphere infused with marble dust he made long-lasting friendships while gaining knowledge and experience. As very young sculptor, he won big international competitions for sculptures in permanent collections in museums of modern art, and thus avoided the destiny of being stonemason assistant. He has had over forty personal and group exhibitions on five continents and he has won prestigious international prizes. His sculptures adorn scuares and public spaces of many cities. Presently he lectures on Belgrade Faculty of Applied Arts, divides his life between Serbia and Italy, enjoys spending time with his four children and dedicates himself to sculpture.
