Claudia Wimmer`s motifs are created using different artistic techniques. She prefers to work using oil painting, drawing and art prints. The core themes are either foreign cultures or individualism in the global world with the emphasis on cultural backgrounds. Often in a tongue-in-cheek manner, she deliberately uses metaphors and clichés like those in the “Breakfast” or “Sayings” series. Real-world objects regularly feature in her paintings in order to reinforce the “tangibility” of her creations.

“I always wanted to express what I see.”
Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) Swiss artist
