Christina Mitterhuber was born on December 29, 1975 in Wels, Austria. She lives and works as a painter, primarily in Vienna, where she has her studio overlooking the city of Vienna!
Since her early childhood - Christina painted her first oil painting at the age of twelve - Mitterhuber has painted over 1000 oil and mixed media paintings on canvas in various sizes before holding her first exhibition in Vienna in 2018.
Mitterhuber is a self-taught painter. She has studied, worked and lived for several years not only in Europe but also in North America and Australia. She has studied during countless visits to museums and galleries around the world. Her favorite painters are the old masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Picasso or Monet among others. Some of her favorite museums are the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
Christina did not show her paintings to the public until 2018. She had her first exhibition in one of Vienna's best galleries and has since participated in more than 20 international exhibitions and art fairs in Austria, Italy, Germany and Spain. Looking back, she feels happy with her decision to wait until she felt ready to show her work to the public.
Mitterhuber also enjoys painting series such as "WE in red," which consists of 58 paintings so far and was inspired by one of Frederic Chopin's Nocturnes. Her other series are "Shades of red", "Violett", "Views", "Eisrosen" or "Aqua touch".
Christina Mitterhuber has already been selected for the Rome Biennale 2020 and the Messina International Art Fair 2019. She currently continues to exhibit her paintings by participating in international art fairs in Venice, Luxembourg, Cannes, Miami, Innsbruck and NYC.
