Gottfried Helnwein

is an Austrian-Irish fine artist, painter, photographer, installation and performance artist. He studied at the University of Visual Art in Vienna (Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Wien). He was awarded the Master-class prize (Meisterschulpreis) of the University of Visual Art, Vienna, the Kardinal-König prize and the Theodor-Körner prize.

“The art academy in Vienna that I studied at is the same one that 60 years before rejected a young man, with the name Adolf Hitler, twice — which is, of course, the biggest mistake that any university has ever made in history.”—Gottfried Helnwein
