Born and based in South Tyrol, Italy, Konrad Laimer has worked with jewelry since 1976. Following apprenticeships with Walter Erckert and the school for master craftspeople in Bolzano, he studied sculpture and jewelry at the Salzburg Summer Academy for Fine Arts. Since establishing his own studio in 1987, he has defined his works through themed workshops ranging from jewelry to objects and graphics. Through installations, international workshops, and multimedia works, he transfers his concepts to various artistic media and locations. The Alps have become Laimer’s main source of inspiration in regard to both themes and materials.
