Alfred Klinkan is an Austrian artist born in 1950 and who died in 1994. He studied art in Vienna and in Antwerp. Alfred Klinkan developed his own figurative style early in his illustrations and paintings. Animals, human beings, as well as mixed and mythical beings, in which baroque metamorphosis thinking is found, populate in closely co-existing Klinkan's works. A nuanced color, often in complementary contrasts, characterizes the works of his mythical worlds and is one of Klinkan's most decisive and striking means of expression. He is known, among other things, for his acclaimed overpaintings of woodcuts by Albrecht Dürer. The late work of Alfred Klinkan in the 90s is characterized by a thematic and formal change. He was one of the most important representatives of Austrian new painting.
