Philip Mueller

1988 · Vienna, Austria

Philip Mueller is an emerging artist whose cacophonous large-scale paintings fill the space with intense colour and his form manipulations reveal narratives that perplex, entertain and entice with references too close to familiarity to ignore. Mueller’s works are not based on fictional stories, but rather autobiographical information and, as a whole, represent his personal utopia. Mueller is one of the founding members of Wiener Achse, an association for transnational and intergenerational exchange in the context of the arts. His works have been shown in exhibitions in Austria, the UAE and several international art fairs. Mueller lives and works in Vienna.
