Günther Villgrater

Günther was born in Innsbruck in 1968. He is a self-taught artist, but has been on the Austrian art market for over 20 years and on the international art market for 4 years.

Today, Günther is one of the most important and best-known contemporary artists in Innsbruck and Tyrol. He has attended several painting courses and summer academies in Innsbruck and also outside of Innsbruck.

Since the mid-90s, he has discovered a new passion for himself - "traveling".

Between 2008-2018 he traveled a lot and even went on a one-year trip around the world in 2017, visiting 13 countries. He immersed himself in all continents, gathered impressions and experiences, played the guitar and was creative

2019 - after a formative and moving encounter in Ethiopia, he then had a creative explosion and since then he has been on a dynamic and intense, possibly new artistic path.

For over 20 years, Günther has been painting small to large, colorful, very dominant compositions that are more or less composed of geometric shapes. His compositions are designed to create a spatial effect. The artist wants to express and depict the real and imaginary reality of his living space. The capture of pictorial, colorful forms, symbols, figures and various materials characterize his style and show the examination of the levels of man, ethics and their interaction. If one is open to responding to and appreciating what is revealed, there will be a multitude of surprises, sometimes even messages... or revelations.

Starting from abstract expressionism, he has been painting forms on canvas dynamically and much more freely since 2018. In this artistic phase, his brushstrokes are clearly recognizable. The very thin and expressively applied paint creates an individual, interrupted culture of forms, more precisely, Günther's paths from his travels.
