The Austrian sculptor and draftsman of German-Yugoslav origin was born on 19 January 1933 as the son of a stonemason in Gakovo in the former Kingdom of Yugoslavia (now Serbia). Andreas ranks among the most important artists of the avant-garde of the Austrian sculpture of the 50s and early 60s. Judgment dies after a severe illness on July 13, 1963 in Vienna.
Judgment forms from 1947 as an autodidact to the sculptor before starting from 1949 with the company Eduard Hauser in Vienna a teaching to the stonemason and by the way occupies the art class at the Viennese Volkshochschule. In 1951 he enrolled at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna and became Fritz Wotruba's masterclass. On study trips to Italy, he explores the art of Renaissance and Classical Antiquity, which serves as a model for his early works. In 1958 his spontaneous "imaginary figurations" emerged and he began to develop his own style, which led him to destroy his works of classical sculpture. From 1961 he teaches as a professor of sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. From the end of the fifty years on, he became famous in the Vienna Secession, the Vienna Museum of the 20th Century, the Berlin School of Fine Arts and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels out. His sculptures are shown posthumously at the documenta III in Kassel in 1964 and at the world exhibitions in New York, Montreal and Cologne. In 1962, the judgment was awarded the Austrian State Prize for Sculpture.
