Lyrik, Poesie
When the poet experienced Aphrodite's personified sexual desires as a 'Dancing Eros' in Book I, he will also appear as a sweet 'Winged Child' throwing his arrows with a deadly aim, making no difference where or on what continent he'll show up, or which gender he chooses at random. But parties in full swing are his preferred spots to mingle, where the young and the young at heart gather with an expectation for a good time, a sensual flirt, or perhaps with good luck finding a matching partner in love.
Born in eastern Austria, close to the Hungarian border, he witnessed as a young man the horrors of a nation's suppression, erupting in the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. He finished his education in art and architecture in Vienna, married, and sailed for the Cape of Africa, an adventure that followed his childhood dreams. He had drawn African animals for his art classes, but the time had come to see them in their natural habitat.
Meeting a varied facet of people and cultures, working as a draughtsman for an engineering office, as an architect for a cultural centre, and as a coordinator for craftsmen and professionals, he made good use of his language skills travelling throughout Southern Africa.
During a trip to Lesotho, a native artist showed him rock paintings with their stark palimpsest outlines and with typified movements of animals and humans. It made a lasting impression on him and influenced his artistic work.
His vast collection of drawings and slides had been lost during a change of domiciles, but further studies of the Sart of the San people reawakened his dormant artistic longing for expression of his art, filling sketchbooks with drawings and notepads with poetry and prose. While revisiting the capitals of Europe, he sensed that the bond of art was borderless and free, reaching out across continents into the world.
During a visit to Greece, he was accepted into a circle of artists and poets, who encouraged him to continue his art and a friend introduced him to the works of famous Greek poets.
In South Africa, he joined writing and poetry workshops of Writers Write. It was to open the floodgates of his creativity. He decided to travel through Greece and visit its sites of antiquity, read up on Classical mythology, and enjoy translations of Greek poetry and prose.
He settled in 2013/14 in Klosterneuburg-Weidling. Poet Nikolaus Lenau is buried here. Franz Kafka had visited here. Their writings will always be an inspiration.
