The Art of Johnny Mussegg

About the Artist: 
Austrian artist Johnny Mussegg was born in 1952 in Judenburg. After spending six years in Ontario, Canada and 2 years in Switzerland he ́s been settled now in Vienna since 1975 where he lives with his wife Heidi. He works in many different media including drawing, carving, painting, photography and super 8 films.

The drawings exhibited here were dreamed up in 1980 when one day after a couple glasses of wine he found some toy stencils, that his daughter had collected from packs of chewing gum. Using the stencils and felt tip pens he started building his characters up out of simple shapes, almost accidentally capturing the spirit of the early 80 ́s.
