Digital art is not bad of course, i use it a lot, but at the end, i think that the handmade work is a little bit more personal, delicate, meaningful, there's no ctrl Z
in this... amazing work Sir.

I just finished an analytical essay on this! Your work has so many layers, I thoroughly enjoyed writing about it. I hope someday to see your works in person!

Recognised as one of the truly great masterpieces of 20th Century art. The one thing that always hits me whenever I see this piece, how many questions per second are hitting my mind.

These are actual Nazi officers (based on a historic photograph where they are surrounding Hitler). The widow of one of the officers painted in this picture, threatened to sue Helnwein as the painting supposedly made her deceased husband look like a racist.

I wonder if I can ask you why do you use Nazi elements with those of Christianity? I canīt get your message sometimes.

I see. To you is a kind of humor. But to many of us, God and Christ are not a matter of humor. I thought that you were a humanist and I think God is a very repectable part of human. Is special when you use the God of a religion diffirent to yours many human hearts might feel hurt. In the same way Hitler destroyed so many human lifes, an artist can destroy many human hearts. :( Thatīs what I think. Thanks for your time.

Had the pleasure of seeing this and many more of your works in an exhibition in Waterford accompanying your installations several years ago. It still amazes me every time I look at your work. Thank you!
