Anniversary exhibition "The World Theater of Hans Sisa"

The exhibition in celebration of Hans Sisa's 70th birthday comprises Paintings, graphics and sculptures.

To celebrate the 70th birthday of opera singer, stage designer, illustrator, painter and sculpturer Hans Sisa, the art museum shows the great anniversary exhibtion "The world theater of Hans Sisa".

Sisa's artistic career is both remarkable and versatile. Born in Linz, Sisa studied at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and then worked worldwide as an opera singer, painter, costume and stage designer as well as multimedia sound and light designer. Today, Hans Sisa lives close to Krems where he works as an artist. He had ninety solo exhibitions (e.g. in Austria, Italy, Estonia, Ukraine, China, ...). His expressive works of art are part of public and private collections.

Hans Sisa was a long-time artist friend of Makis Warlamis, founder of the Waldviertel art museum and universal artist, who died in 2016.
"I appreciate Hans Sisa very much. He is true artist. An emotive thinker of the ,conditio humana´. Imperturbable, tireless and consistent in his attitude, with his clear view of the world," said Makis Warlamis in 2014.

The exhibition can be visited until January 13th on the ground floor of the Warlviertel art museum. The upper floor also shows the annual exhibition "Wonderful forest" until January 13th, 2019.
