The artist Thomas Albdorf was born in Linz, Upper Austria in 1982. After working as a Graphic Designer and Art Director, he studied Transmediale Kunst at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, where he graduated in 2013. Despite working with various media, his main interest focuses on photography and sculpture in particular, the intersection area between both practices, their shifting perceptions and the decontextualization caused by internet distribution.
"Former Writer: Colour on Surface" integrates graffiti-related methods into my photographic and sculptural work. I investigate the relationship between pre-photographic painterly and sculptural interventions and their post-photographic digital equivalents, as well as the connection between spontaneous arrangements in public spaces and compositions staged in the studio that echo the works created outside.
