Werner Szendi – international visual artist

Werner Szendi - international visual artist

Szendi Werner (born in 1966 in Guessing, Austria) currently lives and works in Vienna. He discovered his artistic talent at the age of 16. The creation of several sacral paintings for churches familiarized him early on with the techniques of the Old Masters. He uses pencil, watercolor, acrylic, oil, gold leaf, stones, as well as mental and spiritual energies for his works.

After intensive chromatic studies, he is enthralled with the opportunities to influence people by choosing the correct colors. With his commissioned works, he fulfills individual needs regarding special color and energy, as well as environmental requirements to bring about specific changes.

His light and shadow technique imparts a unique atmosphere of harmony and peace to the paintings. Spheres have a special effect for him, with him gladly introducing them instinctively into his paintings as magical elements. The sphere is a symbol of the universe and is cultural at the same time, for example as an orb symbol of power on Earth - our planet.

Through his paintings, he wishes to express his deep feelings for freedom, peace, love and healing in the world.

Paintings that touch mind and soul:

"In search of the secret of creation, which should deeply touch people’s souls, I discovered that I should not confine myself to the level of my five senses. I not only portray what I see with my two eyes, but also what I see through my emotional eye. To create an eternal, remarkable work of art and to be a true creator, I combine with the divinity, taking elements from it and giving these to my works. Prayer, meditation and contemplation are resources for creative work. The works of art created in this manner reflect a healing energy on the soul of the beholder."







About his work:

Inspiration – a Creative Moment

“For me painting is a creative process that does not begin with the actual activity. The

beginning of each creative moment for me rests in life itself. To recognize this moment,

to allow and implement experience and inspiration forges the path for each artist. My

tools of choice are easel and canvas. That which manifests itself on the white background

in the course of painting is reduced neither to a particular style nor to specific painting

techniques. Life and the universe are not the result of constraint, but of expansion -

usually beyond our powers of imagination. The creative act of painting triggers a journey

within me to my true self: it is meditation, contemplation and reflection all rolled into

one. Above all, an expression of a deeply felt joy of living. Thus, I see my pictures also as

a channel for healing energies where, if the viewer will allow it, its forces will take full


World & Art Appreciation

Werner Szendi LIVES his art, and was able to give his creativity early expression. "The

fine arts have been an important part of my life since I was 16 years old. I have a great

sense of gratitude that my family environment had never put obstacles in the way of my

artistic calling. To this day, where my partner in life accompanies and supports my being

a painter and witnesses “live” almost every "birth" of my paintings. She is more than the

muse at my side, with which every artist likes to adorn himself with. As a constructive

critic, first observer of the artwork and often the helper with the naming of the piece, she

plays a significant role”, said Szendi, whose pictures never leave his studio without a

name. "Every being in the universe comes to life only after its designation. The creation

receives an identity of its own by the naming. We recognize and designate", the artist

continues, stating that the name or title of the picture is a kind of guide for the observer.

"It is the first dialogue with the viewer of the painting.”

Visible Materials & Mental Energy

The artist Werner Szendi distinguishes himself in that he uses more than the visible

stylistic elements: "I do not commit myself to any styles, materials or forms of

representation." Rather, the Austrian abides by the great masters of Italian Renaissance,

whose creative energy found implementation in many forms. Szendi works with visible

and "invisible" materials. Pencil, acrylic paint, oil, gold leaf and semi-precious stones

make his art visible; for our mind’s eye, it is the spiritual energy that he feeds into the

paintings. Therefore, many of his paintings are commissioned works for health

institutions, finding entrance into practices of alternative practitioners and doctors.
