My name is Victor Mangeng. I was born in 1991, I live and work in Schruns/Austria.
My sense for working in 3D was already developed at an early age, but during my time at the Commercial School I noticed my enthusiasm for sculptural work. Opposites attract
The manufacturing process of a sculpture is the most crucial part that forms my creative inspiration as well as my ideas. The technique of sculpting must be mastered, otherwise I would not be able to incorporate the design and aesthetics in the final work. The materials I use predominantly are wood, stone, cement and bronze.
“Sculpture is the art of the hole and the lump; the art of illustrating shapes in the play of light and shadow.” – Auguste Rodin
The former shed of our farm was converted into my atelier, and this is the ideal place for me to pursue the creative process, and to dedicate myself to the constructive flow. Nothing is more satisfying for me than delving into such a special creative spirit.
“The art is constructed in your head – the subject of it in the atelier” – Charly Schneider
My ambition, to bring a specific technique to perfection as well as working on the highest level, together with the boundless possibilities in the fine arts, are the outcome of my artworks.
“In arts, it’s not about finding the right answers, but more about asking the right questions“- Victor Mangeng
