Norbert Brunner

Norbert Brunner (born 1969, Hohenems, Austria) is an Austrian object, conceptual and installation artist. Brunner’s mirror objects reflect not only the viewer, but also superimpose messages across their visual path, insisting they become an interactive part of the installation. He studied on the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Currently Brunner lives and works in Vienna and New York City.




Norbert Brunner was born in Hohenems/Austria. After being raised in Vorarlberg he served a joinery apprenticeship and attended a vocational school for sculpture in Elbigenalp, Tyrol. He studied sculpting on the University of Applied Arts Vienna with professor Wander Bertoni. He also studied by Oswald Oberhuber, Bernhard Leitner, Franz Graf and Isabelle Graw

Brunner has permanent public installations in Paris/France, Vienna/Austria, Vaduz/Liechtenstein, Munich/Germany. His work has been exhibited throughout the world including Beijing, London, New York, Moscow, Paris, Prague, Vienna, Osaka, Berlin. He also participated in the biennale in Valencia and the architecture biennale in Beijing, the Expo in Aichi/Nagoya and the Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibition.

His works are part of important museum and private collections.
