The austrian painter and graphic artist Wolfgang Herzig was born 1941 in Judenburg (Styria). He attended the School of Applied Arts in Graz and studied from 1959 to 1965 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna (with Sergius Pauser). In 1968, he was a founding member of the group "Wirklichkeiten" and became famous after an exhibition in the Vienna Secession: a number of young painters (including Martha Jungwirth, Franz Ringel and Kurt Kocherscheidt) had developed an alternative to the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism. Wolfgang Herzig participated in numerous exhibitions in Austria and abroad; He has been a member of the Vienna Secession since 1968 and since 1993 of the "Künstlersonderbund" in Berlin. From 1997 to 2005 he taught painting at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna (director of the Institute of Fine Arts) and worked as a visiting professor of design at the Institute of Art and Technology from 2005 to 2007. Since the 1960s, Wolfgang Herzig has created an individual work that has a unique position in Austrian post-war art. The human figure with all its weaknesses is its central theme. He describes a picture of man that does not exaggerate reality, but focuses on the everyday and highlights the absurdities of life in which the tragic and the comic are often indistinguishable. Awards, honors (selection): Sponsorship Award of Theodor Körner Foundation Fund, 1970 Prize of the City of Vienna for painting, 1981
