Bruno Gironcoli Gallery Art

Galerie Karl Pfefferle, Munich, Germany

Though Austrian artist Bruno Gironcoli produced notable and imaginative drawings throughout his life, he is primarily known for his monumental, futurist sculptures. These large-scale creations exhibit abstract and figurative components alike, which together suggest hybrid forms and organically inspired machines. Gironcoli was born in 1936 in Villach, Austria, and while his contemporaries opted for traditional materials along the lines of wood and marble, Gironcoli gravitated toward unconventional materials such as plastic and polyester. Painted in metallic bronze, silver, and gold, the sleek appearances belie their mundane origins.


Gironcoli completed his studies at Vienna’s University of Applied Arts before going on to become the head of the School of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. In 2003, Gironcoli represented Austria at the Venice Biennale. While he passed away in 2010, following a long illness, the collection of Gironcoli's work can be viewed at a dedicated museum in the Park at Schloss Herberstein.
