Siggi Hofer

And, 2011 Acryl and pencil on canvas

Siggi Hofer is an artist specializing in drawing, painting and performance, and poetry. He creates objects, drawings, letter paintings, videos and installations. He was born in 1970 in Trentino-Alto Adige (South Tyrol, Italy). He lives and works in Vienna. In his art, which comprises a collection of various themes and materials, he often returns to his home region of Tyrol and childhood memories. Among the motives of his art are relationships between and analysis of different social and political processes, also in historical contexts. He poses questions about the rise and reconstruction of identity and individuality. His work refers to the aesthetics of rebellion and resistance of the last few decades while involving the audience in model situations. LINK Siggi Hover
