Kogelnik, Kiki (1935 - 1997)

Kiki Kogelnik was an Austrian painter, sculptor and printmaker. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, moved to New York in 1961, and is considered to be Austria's most important Pop-related artist.

"My language is the language of images, and this language I speak more fluently than German or English", the expressionist and pop-art artist Kogelnik once said.

A student at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Kiki Kogelnik moved to Paris in 1959 and New York in 1961. Her painting style was characterized by bright colours and silhouetted figures, and was strongly influenced by Pop Art. Later she began using cutout vinyl and fiberglass.

Kogelnik's sculptures are mask-like self-portrait heads mounted on cylindrical pedestals. Her art, which has been shown at various solo and group exhibitions around the globe, received tremendous acclaim in the European avant-garde art world.

Kiki Kogelnik lost her battle with cancer in 1997.
