Michael Gegenfurtner is a german artist born in February 4th 1991. He currently lives and works in Landau an der Isar, a small
bavarian town in the south of Germany. Michael succesfully com-
pleted his studies in Communications design with a Bachelor of Arts at the 'Hochschule fuer angewandte Wissenschaften Wuerzburg-Schweinfurt' in Wuerzburg, Germany, in 2016. Alongside with
his courses, he was able to study one semester at the 'Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University' in Istanbul, Turkey, and to intern for 'One Megagroup Inc.' and 'Ideya Media' as a layout artist in Manila, Philippines.

Michael came into the field of arts in 2010 during a one year stay in the Philippines. Back then, the artist used to volunteer for a
Manila based social institution named 'Puso sa Puso'. During that time, he had the chance to meet two photographers who used their pictures as a way of exposing social issues to the public. Inspired by that, he started to take photographs on his own. Since then, Michael grew a passion for visual arts, especially for graphic design, painting and photography.
