JOS PIRKNER

Jos Pirkner is an Austrian sculptor, born on December 2, 1927 in Sillian/Osttirol.

Jos Pirkner received his education to become a sculptor in Graz and in Salzburg and he also attended the art school in Klagenfurt, Carinthia. He passed the masters of art school in Graz with great success. Later he went to Holland to work in the free academy in Utrecht together with the atelier Brom (a well-known factory for gold and silver sculptors). Jos Pirkner quickly achieved success in Europe and the USA with his silver, gold and glass sculptures. For more than 25 years he lived in Holland where he had his studio. In 1978 he returned to the Osttirol in Tristach near Lienz where he now lives and works.

The works of Jos Pirkner represent above all human beings. Thus he created figures for the fountains of Wattens, for the fountain on the “Sparkassenplatz” in Innsbruck and the tomb of Julien Green, who had asked Jos Pirkner as a sculptor. In addition he also creates sculptures of horses and bulls. He built the “Neidersachsenbrunnen” in Münster, which was inaugurated on October 20, 1991, with 8 horses representing the eight autonomous municipalities of the past; it is the largest work in the city. In 2014 Jos Pirkner ended up at the Red Bull headquarters in Fuschl am See (near Salzburg) with the “Bullen von Fuschl” (“The Fuschl Bulls”). The herd consists of 14 enormous bulls and is 22 meters long; this bronze sculpture is the largest in Europe.
