is a mixed media artist who was born in Austria in 1976. In 2010 she graduated as a Master of Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Photography, collages and travelling the world are her passions.
Her photographic range of interest covers the daily life on the road, journeys and staged scenes. Art enables her to express all the ideas and impressions, from still lives to mixed
media collages and video installations. She started her creative career in the fashion business, therefore she likes to work in interdisciplinary way by using colors and textiles. During her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts she got to know many different techniques which she enjoys to combine now: photographs are printed on the canvas she paints, writes or sews over. She dis- and reassembles her photographs and footages into pieces of their own. “I love to create a surreal visual experience, for which I preferably use this special technique. By combining photography, collage and painting, I tell stories which are close to my heart - always colorful, bold and funky.”
Eva Silberknoll exhibits her work internationally, e. g. in Mexico, Italy and at the Armory Show in New York. She is also preselected for upcoming exhibitions in Switzerland, Poland and Mexico. Together with the locals of Krumpendorf, a village in Austria, she created a video installation shown at different public spaces this spring.
