Beni Altmüller is an experienced Austrian painter, draftsman, graphic artist and sculptor who has exhibited his work internationally, including in Italy, Japan and Australia. He wants to encourage every viewer to step into opposing environments that challenge his self-image and to compose images with distorted perspectives and attitudes. His depicted figures rotate and fly in unrecognizable scenes and bounce off fabric-like surfaces in order to ultimately require the perception to be considered. His works can be seen at: Collection of the State of Upper Austria, Collection Lentos Linz, Österr. National Bank, Angerlehner Collection, Siemens Munich Collection, Palazzo Barolo Turin, and many more.
