Austrian photographer Stefan Draschan has develeoped to a great international artist. his works are out of print… we have 5 pieces left of the edition people matching artworks . he spends most of his time in museums and on 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 Vermeer, a couple reminiscent of Rembrandt, a punk in front of a Warhol – if he can get the right shot, astounding parallels are revealed. Draschan has developed a particular understanding of the layout of museums all over Europe and has 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 goers until his predicted constellation might appear. the artsts 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.”
