Thomas Waidhofer

Born in 1988, Thomas is a viennese artist and designer. After his apprenticeship as a high voltage electrician he studied digital art at the university of applied arts. During his study it became apparent that his work was more about artistic design than digital values. Since 2015 he works on objects, spaces and installations, in which he always tries to give narratives to conventional furnishings. In some cases, old furniture and lamps serve as a medium, while new objects are often constructed using all the tools of technology and craftsmanship. His work mostly revolves around imperfectionism or even the destruction of something considered perfect. Thomas counts recognizing the beauty of flaws as one of his most important skills. From minimalism to the extraordinary, all tastes are served by mixing different styles. He likes to describe his work with two words - beauties & beasts.
