GAZMEND FREITAG

ART IS ETERNAL AND I LOVE THE BEAUTY AND COLORFUL LIVES PEOPLE LIVE

Gazmend Freitag was born in 1968 in Pataqani i Poshtem, Kosovo. His artistic talent was already evident when he was a child. Political changes in long-oppressed Kosovo, along with the closure of the University of Pristina, where he was studying at the Faculty of Law, prompted him in 1990 to flee to Germany, where he remained until 2003. While there, he returned to what had been his childhood passion – art.

Since 2004 he has lived in Linz, Upper Austria and has had his work shown in national and international exhibitions and art fairs. His favorite subjects are femininity, nudes, still lifes, landscapes and portraits. Much of his artwork has been inspired by such well-known artists as Pablo Picasso and Albanian-Italian painter Maler Ibrahim Kodra. In addition, he maintains a lively exchange with colleague artists.

Freitag understands how to transpose sensitively the landscapes of his homeland or motifs from mythology to his oil paintings and his ink and pencil drawings. Many of his works embody the “beautiful moments” the artist cherishes in the classic modern art style, interplaying between Impressionism and Expressionism.

For the first time ever, he is showing a cross-section of his extensive oeuvre as part of SVA Kunstplatzes 2015.
