about the artist

Michaela Konrad, 2017  

Michaela Konrad (1972 en Graz) is an Austrian artist living and working in both, Vienna, Austria and Santa Cruz, Tenerife. Her work includes paintings, limited-edition of offset printing, and experimental comic books. She also made a number of Multimedia Art projects, for example for the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz (Austria). Her art has  been shown in numerous exhibitions and are being purchased for public and private collections. Konrad’s style is reduced to the essentials. She normally works in sequences – although normally her work lacks linear narrative structures. She has the objective of making a connection between art and comics. She applies the pop art characteristic of “flat painting” and combines it with the aesthetics of midcentury US comic cover art. But the content of her work is different from the stylistic influences. Science, the philosophical interpretations of science and contemporary history are some of the artist`s sources of inspiartion. Due to her interest in the phenomenon of time and space, science fiction is one her great passions.
