Ernst FuchsBorn in Vienna in 1930, Ernst Fuchs introduced already during his studies at the Vienna Academy in 1946-47, his works along with other young artists to the audience. He is one of the co-founders of fantastic realism in Vienna School. This artistic movement known was born in 1945 in Vienna and aware of the abstract art borders. The artists were in their works with the French Surrealism, the experience of the new objectivity and Pittura metafisica, as well as the fantastic elements of the pre-war Viennese art. Ernst Fuchs factory has significantly influenced of the 20th Century art.

The motives are complex symbols representing the afflictions of the people between life and death. Biblical and mythological representations dominate. The motives of the old and New Testaments are deliberately cryptic and visionary expressiveness. These puzzles are designed to instruct the viewer as the artist knowledge and solution.

His confrontation with the heterogeneous art traditions led him to a private historicism. He mixed, partly in polemical intentioned shape styles. In his first book "Architectura caelestis / the images of the lost style", in 1964 he published, outlining his artistic conception.

Something mystical and often erotic adheres to the imaginative picture inventions, often alienated by surreal elements. Fox's entire oeuvre is crisscrossed repeatedly by biblical motives. They lead to the unique book object, the Ernst Fuchs Bible.
