 About Artist

Hubert Kostner was born in Brixen, Italy, in 1971. He lives and works in Kastelruth, Italy.

Hubert KOSTNER deals ironically with tourist stereotypes. He smiles at the tourist’s perception that is so full of clichés. He engraves alpine sceneries in wood, themes that are too familiar from postcards. When it is then painted with yellow varnish and lit up with spotlights, you find yourself imagining a mountain illuminated by sunlight.
