Growing up in Tyrol, Rudolph Pigneter absorbed his surroundings and references the landscapes and people of the historical region in the Alps in which he grew up. With a strong focus on mountainous landscapes, snow-capped peaks, and the rural terrane, Pigneter captures the essence of the outdoors through abstraction. His style is powerful and expressionistic, which he achieves through the use of bold colors and his palette knife. Pigneter is also recognized for his portraits of the people of Tyrol; for these works, he uses styles reminiscent of the old masters, painting solely with oil on a large canvas.
Pigneter is known as one of the best Tyrolean artists. His work is a celebration of his heritage filled with emotion. Pigneter hopes to inspire and awaken the true emotions in those who view his work.
