Christiane Hofer, 1981 born in Oberpullendorf currenly lives and works in Graz, Austria. She attends the Medical University of Graz as well as the School of Osteopathy in Vienna.
She acquired her painting skills on an self-educated way and for this reason works as an painting artist since 2012. Her main focus is based on portraits and the haptic presentation of her paintings. She loves to assimilate waste-products such as wastepaper, used plastics or everyday objects within her paintings and experiments with different techniques of painting. From this follows that the structure in her paintings is used to define delicately chiseled features and generates a type of natural mask. This processing of haptical paintings always continues to influence her inspiration.
