Josef KÜHN

Born 1945 in Vienna; self-taught person;

Childhood memories at bombed houses and air-raid shelter built in bricks, especially suit to play "Indians";
encounter with painters since youth, education through the nature...
Longing to light and sun drives me in the south - Greece, specially Crete,
where I paint 3 years on minoic floor, the sleeping Zeus before the front doors ;
later at the Turkish coast I moved from place to place - strong picturesque
yield, clear light and radiation of colours; returned to Austria some
years working with other artists in a progressive painters-group
and very abundant participations at home and abroad;
in the last years establishment of a group - "artist for nature" -
common drives and events with emphasis environment and nature;
target: to manufacture a multinational art network ; (JoKühn)
