Martin Kratochwil / Intuitive Drawing

I live in Vienna, freelancing as an artist. My preferred materials are pencil and paper. A vivid line is the most important thing for me. When I draw, I start with an empty head. My brain is “closed” and I am open for intuition. I do the first lines and let my fingers “talk” to create my creatures. The ideas of zen and taoism are a big influence. I like the idea not to evaluate during the process of creation. A free and open mind is the basic interest of my artwork.

When knee problems forced me to stay at home for some weeks, I started drawing. Since that moment, I never stopped. My knee problems vanished, but I went on doing my art. Drawing became a big passion and an important part of my life.
