Voka

Biographie Œuvres

Voka, born 1965, lives and works in the Lower Austrian town of Puchberg am Schneeberg. He coined the term "Spontaneous Realism" as a trademark for his art. Voka defines this style as a revival of the significance of contemporary art, a valued tradition in a new era, with a new interpretation reflecting today´s spirit of the time. His distinctive style, emerging from the dynamic of the moment, enables him to strikingly capture immediate reality while the observer is able to palpably feel the imbedded movement. His ability to create one of his paintings in a short space of time and with great dynamic, he explained in a very simple way “I have dealt with painting for a very, very long time in a very slowly and intensively way.”

Spontaneous Realism

"If you look in a dictionary for the word spontaneous you will find definitions like, "rising from a momentary impulse without conscious reflection", or, "not apparently contrived or 
manipulated: natural" or "often surprising for the surrounding environment".
 Looking at Voka's paintings from this vantage point, makes this newly created expression a more than meaningful description of his work. If one has the opportunity or chance to watch the painter while he is in the act of creating his work, and see – or better, experience – the immediacy, vigor and enthusiasm with which Voka creates his paintings, then this simple expression, spontaneous realism, conveys a defining emotion. And this is exactly the moment where his art begins. Voka's inspirations are the everyday events of daily life, the seemingly hidden, though omnipresent."
