The painter, graphic artist, sculptor and photographer Josef Hirthammer, born in Bad Reichenhall, Germany, in 1951, is considered one of the most versatile artists of our time. At the beginning of his artistic career, Hirthammer mainly used random found objects for his sculptures. In the early 1980s, he then created the thematic complexes of "Nature" and "Contemporaries", which he still pursues today and reinterprets over the years.
The Munich-trained artist has had numerous exhibitions nationally and abroad and has been receiving many awards. His works can be found in public collections in Basel, Bamberg and Würth.
