Leopold Strobl was born in 1960 in Mistelbach, Austria, and has been a guest at the open studio in Gugging for the past fourteen years. He draws in the morning and creates a new work of art every single day. The ideas, templates rather, for his small-format drawings, which look like magnetic small portals, come from local, daily, weekly, and church magazines. Once he has selected a motif, he first devotes himself to the black areas, then the sky is coloured green, and finally the border is emphasised. For his works, he uses coloured pencils in black, light green, three different shades of yellow, and rarely the colour red. His works can be found in the MoMA, USA, the Treger/Saint Silvestre Art Brut Collection, Portugal, and in the abcd ART BRUT Collection, France. He lives and works in Poysdorf and Kritzendorf.
