Katherina Olschbaur conjures seductive forms through an artistic lens reminiscent of Surrealism. The metamorphosis of figures and materialities — simultaneously creation, fusing and disbanding — is a fundamental aspect of her work, which is characterized by smooth washes of neon-like color.
Katherina Olschbaur studied Painting, Animation Film, and Stage Design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Katherina Olschbaur was born in 1983 in Bregenz, Austria, and lives and works between Vienna and Los Angeles.
