With Ernst Caramelle (*1952 in Hall in Tirol) the Galerie der Stadt Schwaz hosts a Tyrolean artist who has been working successfully on the international level since the 1970s. Ever since the late 1970s he has been developing his artistic concepts in various media formats such as painting, photography, space installation, video, text, drawing or sunlight. From an art historic point of view, especially Caramelle’s particular mural painting technique is a prominent example of how conceptual art and painting can complement each other. Ernst Caramelle has been the principal of the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe (Germany) since 2012. He lives and works alternately in Karlsruhe, Frankfurt, and New York.
