Biography

Christian Rosa graduated from the Akademie der Bildenden K√ľnste Wien where he studied under Daniel Richter (2007-2012). Rosa is an artist who works across media but collage and painting are at the center of his practice. He employs an approach to painting that reduces decision making to the limitations of his physical actions. There is an ongoing struggle to unlearn and rediscover, in which each piece is like a moment isolated from an ever-changing surface. Through this process, Rosa deconstructs, reconfigures  and explores the future possibilities of the moment of failure. He is one of the prominent young artists working in Vienna whose energy and practice have an important role in the growing scene in which he is involved. He not only exhibits as an artist but curates and organises exhibitions, events, screenings and publications.

Christian Rosa (*1982 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) lives and works in Vienna, Austria and Los Angeles, USA.
