Gottfried Helnwein, you are simply a master at your artwork. I love all your pictures, because they have a special meaning and sign. It shows another side of our life. 
At first I watched a documentary film about you and it's stunning.
Please keep it up your great work!  

Sorry for my bad english

I want to see pieces of detail of paintings like this. It's stunning to have skills like representing reality on canvas with patient and some pigments every one can use, without using them your way. It's vivid and know what artists are cable of in the world today, where ideas seems more important then skills. Fast money more a proofed then patience in our rush-rush time. Why the rush? Mostly for the money..but for some others, like myself? A way of life? Even when we struggle against it? Pressure of the environment? Time is money? Money for what? It made me thinking for years.. painting like this is not for the money, not to proof yourself you can do better then others..even not to have fun or to feel happy when doing it. But be one whit yourself..escaping reality this way..reaching frontiers of autism, most likely. But stunning, intense with creation, dreams, coordination from brain to pencil, brush or what so ever..timeless without profit. A real artist "being"..and not presuming to live like one.

Thanks for sharing: Great picture with the artist in front..without to be active..more absent, like a shadow of his own work.

This is incredibly gorgeous, it's stunningly amazing. It seems so soft too, and yet, there is texture to her cheeks. I like how the eyes bring it all together.

ich hab mir das bild jetzt schon mehrmals angeschaut und muss sagen es ist ein meisterwerk :) sehr realistisch geworden und besonders die wahl vom motiv find ich gut. wie lange braucht man ca. für sowas und wieviel jahre muss man üben um so weit zu kommen? würd das gerne mal mit meinem derzeitigen stand vergleichen^^

ShadowSpawned Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2011
This might seem arrogant but I assure you, it's not meant to mock you, just curious:
Why not just take a photo?

As it seems you only paint really realisticly, and a photo blow up is much less effort?
Secrets-Of-Paranoia Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Which one is more impressive? :)
Ryuuji Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2011  Professional Filmographer
I think it's because the process of painting is rewarding in itself. You build up something out of a blank canvas, and you can watch with you own eyes as you manipulate it into its final form. It's just something I think a photo would not achieve alone [not to say that some photography isn't powerful...], it doesn't capture the journey and the hours it took to achieve. Ultimately it seems much more powerful because of the fact that it takes great skill to achieve a realistic look. C:
