Austrian photographer Stefan Draschan  has developed to a great international artist. his works are nearly outsold. Available works  left of the edition people matching artworks  you find in our online shop . He spends  most of his time in museums and in the street photographing happy coincidences of color, form, pattern and style. He took up photography four years ago and his visual eye creates images that showcase exceptional perceptions of connections between objects, people and works of art.

For his series “People Matching Artworks” Draschan captures encounters between museum visitors and the works of art, they engage with. A women matching

Jan Vermeer, a couple reminiscent of Rembrandt van Rinn, a punk in front of a Warhol – if he can get the right shot, parallels are revealed. Draschan developed a particular understanding of the layout of museums all over Europe and learned how to predict the movements of visitors from artwork to artwork. He is on the hunt for the perfect shot and follows the museum goer s until his predicted constellation might appear.  

The artists work: “Maybe it is like being in love, I am just happy when something fits.”

Stefan Draschan’s series “people matching artworks” deals with the universal design means and possibilities of textiles and textures in the light of art history that affect our thinking and seeing as well as our unconscious. the seemingly random correspondences in his pictures are the result of long and persistent hunts and observations.

“Maybe it is similar to those in love, I’m just happy if something fits together.”
