Bio

Manuel Langstadlinger was born the third child of four in the small town of Neulengbach, Lower Austria, on 08/18/1990 born. He grew up there and still lives in this place today. As the son of a Sinto (m) (“Sinti” are a sub-group of the Roma), his talent attracted attention even as a small child. Inspired by his own father, who was an artist himself, the first years were characterized by realism. During this time, many different motifs were created, most of which were portraits and even then the focus was on imaginative scenarios. Later, art quickly functioned as a place of refuge in which he could process everyday problems in the family, the outside world, as well as emotions. This provided an important anchor for the artist to protect and save himself. In 2006 the first exhibitions of the artist began. A few years later, in 2008, further instruction in painting and graphics began with Mag.art Maria Savchenko-Terzinsky, who taught theory and practice in Neulengbach. In 2010 Langstadlinger began studying graphic design at the New Design University, St.Pölten, which he later dropped out of. In the years that followed, the artist worked full-time as a graphic designer and illustrator for various companies and design agencies. Despite the enthusiasm to be able to show his artworks as part of an exhibition, the artist decided in 2012 to hold his last exhibition for the time being, which took place in Club B72 in Vienna, together with the artists Marcin Glod, Belinda Swoboda & Melanie Morawetz. The mostly negative experiences within the art scene over the years and the deterioration of his brother’s health finally confirmed this decision. In the years that followed, the artist began to work intensively on his own art and continued his education in design and art. Today he holds degrees from the Sgd Hessen, OfG Lippstadt and the German Pop Academy. Langstadlinger finally successfully completed his degree in graphic design at the OfG, Lippstadt. In 2019 he returned with an exhibition in Vienna. This was initiated by MBA Franz Erhard Lerch, Chairman of the Vienna Art Forum. This was immediately followed by a joint exhibition with artist Michael J Masata at the same gallery. Today Langstadlinger works as a freelance graphic designer and artist and can be seen at various exhibitions.
