Show Artworks


Josef Florian Krichbaum was born in Innsbruck, Austria in 1974. He studied painting at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, where he graduated with distinction. Since then, he has lived and worked as a freelance artist in Vienna and in Hausruck, Upper Austria.

"... Fritz Ostermeyer has noticed the similarity between Josef Krichbaum and Nicholas Ofczarek and perhaps it is not only the physical presence of the person but also the delicately powerful, classical trained absurdity, mannered realism that gives his work a similarly Ofczarek-like presence. Josef "Pepi" Krichbaum has founded his own Viennese school, a fantastically fantastic realist, whose pictures always surprise again and again..."
