Thomas Waidhofer

Born 1988, i live and work in vienna/europe.
After my apprenticeship as a high voltage electrician, I studied digital art at the university of applied arts in vienna. During my study it became apparent that my work is more about artistic design than digital values. Since 2015 I work on objects, spaces and installations, in which I always try to give narratives to conventional furnishings. In some cases old furniture and lamps serve as a medium, while new objects are often constructed with all the tools of technology and craftsmanship. My results range from the minimalism to the extraordinary, which is mainly determined by the mix of different styles, processing possibilities and materials. I like to describe my work with two simple words - beauties & beasts.
