Artist Portfolio Magazine’s 20 Art Competition
Anton Hoeger – Oberschleissheim, Germany
Anton Franz Höger is German painter born 1956 in Munich. He is a member of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, founded by five writers and painters, including Ernst Fuchs.
“I am a realist through and through, apolitical and not moralizing. This realism, which tends less to represent reality than to establish a reality, rejects any emphasis and any dramatic sensation or satirical intention in a work of art. They are authentic creations, separated from the abstract and from what one could contemptuously call illustrative. I try to depict the found or invented motif in such a way that as an artist I give the viewer the feeling of encountering a new reality that has more weight than just an image.”
