Robert Rottensteiner was born in Klagenfurt in 1960 and has been dabbling in drawing for as long as he can remember. Beginning to live out his dreams from an early age, he has been a street painter, a student of the Graz School of Arts and Crafts, a lithographer, head of a large advertising agency, a tramp and a dropout, just to name a few of his paths traveled. Today, he works as a concept artist, designer, art director, illustrator and author. As captain at the helm, the liberal free thinker and philanthropist exemplifies the values to which his crew is dedicated. For team Rottensteiner, the commitment to humanism is not empty rhetoric but something to live by.

AW: The reputation of a man, who doesn’t talk bad about anyone precedes you. How do you manage to uphold this rare quality?

ROBERT: I’m sure that in some encounters I have been perceived as an asshole by others and honestly, I do think sometimes, he or she is an asshole. But then I say to myself: he or she wasn’t born this way. In a world like ours it’s pretty easy to get so tangled up in your own skin that one eventually forgets that the spirit is always free. Knowing that makes it easier to accept certain limitations. Don’t be disappointed with the quail for not having the desire to fly and never talk bad about the size of its eggs.
