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.
