Art Brokerage: Christian Nesvadba German Artist: b. 1977-2008. Christian Nesvadba was born in 1977, the son of artist, Gerhard Nesvadba. Christian passed away tragically on October 7th, 2008. Christian was born into a family with an artistic heritage for several generations. Visiting the regular school system, Christian’s talent for drawing was soon recognized by his teachers and he changed to a school specializing in drawing and engineering. This school turned out to be too technical for Christian, and he de decided 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 there Christian could learn a great deal from his father. It was not long before he developed his own sense of color and style, bold, fresh and vibrant; a new style of painting for a young artist with new ideas of his own. Christian’s first love was his expressionistic abstractions in which he poured his heart and soul into each individual painting. It was later that Christian began to paint his more traditional floral arrangements, which then also carried over into his expressionistic abstract formats as the two worlds seemed to get closer and closer as he matured as an artist. Christian Nesvadba loved to paint flowers. He traveled extensively and was an ardent photographer, always collecting new ideas for his painting subjects and compositions. His view of flowers was a very personal one. It was not so much the exact botanical form, it was the color, sometimes the explosion of colors that he expressed in his paintings. His career began in 1997 when he was awarded with the ‘kultufonds’ award; a highly prestigious award in Austria. Listings for original paintings wanted.
