Gottfried Helnwein’s wounded children

Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein (1948) has worked as a painter, photographer, muralist, sculptor, installation and performance artist, using a wide variety of techniques and media. The human condition as his subject matter has emerged and stayed consistent throughout his career. The metaphor for his art, although it included self-portraits, is dominated by the image of the wounded child, scarred physically and emotionally.
