Hans Kupelwieser – Untitled, 2020 25.07.2023

Special stamp Hans Kupelwieser

On the occasion of his 75th birthday, Austrian Post pays tribute to Hans Kupelwieser with a commemorative stamp featuring one of his works.

Hans Kupelwieser was born in 1948 in Lunz am See in Lower Austria. He studied at the Higher Graphical Federal Education and Research Institute as well as at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, and from 1995 he was a professor at the Institute for Contemporary Art at the Graz University of Technology. Many of his works can be seen in public spaces; for example, in 2004 the lake stage in his birthplace Lunz was built following his design. In his work, Kupelwieser uses different techniques and materials, mixing media to create photographs, sculptures, and room-filling installations. The stamp motif shows an untitled relief made in 2020, anodised aluminium, 170 by 180 by 30 centimetres.
