Mariella Lehner 1992 * is a visual artist whose practice includes drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. The underlying theme of her work revolves around the relationship between man and his environment, manifested in commentaries on issues such as feminism, environmentalism, and international conflict/solidarity.
Through an uncanny yet dreamy imagery and titles that allude to the often political origins of the works, the viewer is invited to explore and question the complexity of today’s social climate and the contradictions in their own attitudes towards the issues depicted.
In addition to participating in various national and international group exhibitions, her works have been exhibited in Austrian institutions such as the Künstlerhaus Bregenz, the Volkskundemuseum Wien, the Wien Museum, the Stadtmuseum St. Pölten and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.



* in Salzburg, lives in Vienna and Berlin.
He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and at the Academy of Fine Arts Athens, Greece.
Since 2017 he is a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
Christian Schwarzwald works with drawings. His idea of drawing is that of an all-encompassing and unrestricted medium. Since drawing is everything to Schwarzwald, almost everything is drawn into his universe. Faces, abstract patterns, architectures, plants, objects, etc. are rigorously worked through and combined in blocks to create installations and entire spaces that embrace the visitor as they enter. A single drawing is no longer seen as just that, but as part of a more complex system of visual worlds. With an analytical mind, Schwarzwald creates an encyclopedic world of drawing that confronts our contemporary world, questioning and challenging its views.
