Alias of Jasmina Sevic, a researcher and author for Widewalls. She graduated from the Faculty of Political Science (Department for Journalism) in Belgrade in 2013.

As well as being one of the most well-known contemporary artists hailing from Salzburg, Austria, Gottfried Salzmann is a painter whose talents and creativity know no limits. A great technical virtuosity in watercolors, along with his use of dramatic motifs, are what make Salzmann’s oeuvre astonishing. In a career that encompasses over four decades, the artist has become widely recognized for his eye-catching artworks depicting some of the world’s most famous cities including Paris, New York, and London.

Watercolour of the Cityscapes

Widely recognized for his watercolor paintings of skyscrapers and apartment buildings inspired by his visits to the world’s major capitals, Salzmann often uses a wide range of techniques simultaneously, bridging the gap between watercolour and collage, between photography and drawing. In his practice, the artist does not only paint, but treats the paper in an artistic way, scratching, scraping, drying, wetting, and drying it again, so his pieces aren’t just paintings, but verge on the sculptural. Using his own unique visual language Salzmann depicts the changes in society and architecture from an original point of view. Streets, parks, architecture, and public surfaces of cities like New York or Paris are the main motifs the artist deals with expertly.

Background and Retrospective in the Salzburg Museum

Gottfried Salzmann was born in 1943 in Saalfelden, the Austrian state of Salzburg. He became interested in art at the age of twelve when he told his parents that he wanted a book about painting for Christmas. He obtained his degrees from the National School of Arts, Vienna in 1965 and from L’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris three years later. Since that time, his work has been included in over 150 solo shows throughout the world. In 2003, for the artist’s 60th birthday, the Salzburg Museum organized a retrospective exhibition of the artist’s oeuvre including the key work complexes.

A Master of Watercolor

Inspired by the work of English landscape painter J.M.W. Turner, as well as Kokoschka, Klimt, Hradil, and Hundertwasser, Salzmann has been painting in the watercolor medium for over forty years. His work is now included in the collections of such notable museums as the Albertina Museum, Vienna, the Museum of Salzburg, Musée de la Ville de Paris, the Royal Museum of Lichtenstein, the Metropolitan Museum of Manila and the Museum of Seoul, Korea. Amongst being a master of watercolor, he also explores new artistic disciplines and mixes photography with collage, acrylics with printed material, and much more.

The artist is represented by Joël Knafo Art Gallery.

Gottfried Salzmann lives and works between Paris and Vence, France.
