Photograph of CHRISTIAN STELLNER
Born on the 6th of October 1974 at Gmünd, Lower Austria.
Pencil and felt pen have been his favorite toy, since his childhood. During his Primary school time his teachers took notice of his outstanding talent of drawing and painting.
Since 1995 CS specialized in caricatures, particularly in portrait caricatures.
Christian Stellner had been infected more than 20 years ago with a virus, called “U2”. “Rattle and Hum” - his teacher in music and English told him to watch as a home exercise - this video was his stumbling block for a life as a fan.
Bono’s voice, Edge’s guitar both accompanied by the rhythms of Larry and Adam are the synthesis keeping Stellner caught.
Don’t wonder that these four musicians from Dublin are giving the standard of the quality of Stellners pictures: “The Soundtrack Of His Life”. His most beloved models, perfect on stage, ever had to be painted perfectly - you know?
Stellner is a master in finding out people’s mimic characteristics and he has a good feeling for details - he is a “painting investigator”…
Stellner´s U2 caricatures - originals, illustrations and special projects on your personal order can be purchased too.
