Wolfgang was born near Stuttgart in 1956 and after completing High School, he trained as a dental technician. After completing his masterclass he decided at the age of 29 years to work independently as a freelancer. Nearly twenty years later he bought a piece of land in São Brás de Alportel, Algarve, and built a house and a dental laboratory, and learned the Portuguese language.
His hobby has always been designing, carving and sanding sculptures from different materials. Through his profession he has always been keen to master perfect details, and with this approach, pieces of various materials (wood from olive trees; alfarroba (Carob) and almond trees), limestone, marble, alabaster, granite and soapstone can surprise everybody with their unusual subtleties and stunning details.
Wolfgang exhibits across the Algarve, contact him for more information about upcoming exhibitions and events.
Wolfgang has work for sale and on display in his Dental and Art Studio in Santa Catarina, and also has work for sale at the ‘4 Elementos’ Gallery in Olhão.
