Dietmar Wölfl trained as an interior designer in his parent’s business from 1970 to 1973 whilst painting on the side. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna from 1974 to 1978 and in 1985, he had moved to Munich to work as an independent artist and give him a good basis for his active artistic development. He was mentored by prominent artist Robert Zielasco, who significantly influenced his painting style, making it what it is today. In turn, Dietmar has now become the teacher and offers courses at well-known academies and workshops in his large studio at home, a converted farm in Bavaria.
Dietmar Wölfl’s art is one-of-a-kind. He has managed to establish his technique and dynamics as unique to him, something every artist strives for. His motto, “I reach for the colours until the unexpected occurs,” describes his modesty when speaking about his work, but it is not all there is to his finished pieces.
Dietmar Wolfl’s bold mark making and a keen skill for carefully considered compositions give his paintings strong appeal amongst both new and experienced collectors. The artist has gained a large audience with his contemporary art including the likes of Damien Hirst who is himself a collector of Dietmar’s work.
