The Austrian artist
currently lives and works near Vienna. After graduating from the University of Applied Arts Vienna in 2006, he received several awards, including the Art Austria Award 2014. Zsaitsits dedicates his artistic work to drawing, more specifically to graphite drawing, and with its help explores the soul life of the protagonists depicted. His works are particularly characterized by technical refinement in their realization. His pencil style fluctuates from coarse, firm strokes to delicate, filigree touches. His works can be found in national and international private and museum collections such as the collections of the Albertina Vienna, the collection of the City of Vienna as well as in various Austrian State Collections. "As far as the visual arts are concerned, I believe that drawing is the medium that comes closest to human thought. In my works of art, I try to facilitate the vital questions without neglecting the daily problems of man. From the big picture to the small and vice versa. From wanderings to concrete ideas. From worldly everyday life to the search for meaning. Order and chaos as unity in my head."
