Matthias Verginer was born 1982 in Bressanone, Italy. From childhood he has been exposed to creativity and working in a workshop. After compulsory education he attended an art school in Selva Gardena, with a focus on commercial art and sculpture. In his third year, he then decided to focus more on sculpting. After graduation and a year of studying with his Father, he worked with sculptor Aron Demetz. Since 2003 Matthias has been working independently in a workshop in Ortisei, Italy, which he shares with both his twin brother and father.
After a traditional sculpture training I developed pieces that are outspo
ken about life. My work combines nature and humans in an extremely unusual way. At first glance they may look entertaining or strange, but there are deep and multi layered stories behind each of the works.
