Christian Nesvadba was born in Vienna; he is the son of the established and respected artist, Gerhard Nesvadba. Being raised in a family with several generations of artistic heritage, Christian was exposed to painting and drawing at an early age.
Christian began his formal education in the regular school system, but his talent for drawing was soon recognized by his teachers. In 1991 he was transferred to a school which specialized in drawing and engineering. In 1993 Christian realized that his current school was too technical and structured. He left school, to devote himself to a more artistic career in painting.
Christian’s first and foremost tutor and mentor was his father, Gerhard, who is a well-known and highly successful artist. Christian’s first paintings were done on his father’s easel. While painting with Gerhard, Christian learned a great deal, but it was not long before he developed his own sense of color and style, bold, fresh, and vibrant a distinct style of painting for a young artist with new ideas of his own.
His view of flowers is a very personal one. It is not so much the exact botanical form; it is the color, sometimes the explosion of colors that he expresses in his paintings. His eye for color, movement, and mood are exquisite, and his riotous impressionist flowers are only beginning to receive the attention they deserve.
Christian was born to paint, by the age of 20, he was an award-winning artist. In 1997 he received the “Kultufonds” award, a highly prestigious award in Austria. Not only are his paintings wonderful to view and live with, but a steadily increasing demand for his work makes this artist highly collectable. �Tilting at Windmills� Gallery is one of the first galleries in the United States to display works by Christian Nesvadba.
