The South Tyrolean Pepi Pescollderungg was born in 1945 in Stern/Abteital. He attended the art school in Wolkenstein and the art institute in Ortisei. Since 1977, he has been a freelance sculptor.
Pescollderungg preferred material is wood. His oeuvre includes works of great abstraction but also filigree sculptures with traditional subjects, which he artfully works out of a single massive block of wood. He attributes an explicit purpose to his more abstract works. For example, an oak sculpture that marks the end of a sculpture path in Reckenthal, Germany. This sculpture deliberately intended to be a study in form and a place to sit down and reflect.
