Markus Redl

Markus Redl born 1977 in Klosterneuburg, lives and works in Vienna. Before studying at the University of applied arts, Vienna in Erwin Wurm's class, Markus Redl studied psychology with a focus on criminology at the Juridicum. His sculptural practice has been preceded by many years studying literature and theater. During this time he was also developing a practice that involved drawing, poetry and text (where language and semiotics play a central role). In addition, Redl has also realized major projects that combine architecture and landscape, figure and abstraction. His latest project was a sculpture for the Würth collection, in which a 16 tons sculpture was created from a marble block of more than 50 tons.
