Lukas Thaler, born 1989 in Hall in Tyrol, lives and works in Vienna, AT. In 2015 Thaler graduated from the painting class at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. In 2012 he founded the Vienna based artist-run-space MAUVE, with Titania Seidl. Since 2021 he is a lecturer at University of Technology, Department of Art and Design, Vienna, AT.
Besides Thaler’s background in painting, the artist is currently working in the field of figurative sculpture, experimenting with different materials and practises, that are often connectable with theatre stage design. His objects explore functional, aesthetic, and formal potentials of different everyday objects and their material. He is interested in sculptural criteria such as volume and weight, as well as the relationship between the interior and exterior of an object.
