Art has been part of Daniel Hilgert’s life since childhood – a constant companion taking on different forms.

The founding of his own company and the birth of his daughter in 2014 marked a new development in his artistic approach, but his passion is as strong as ever.

"I paint for people,
                not for museums"

diverse - experimental - combineable

Go to the art


A painting on my wall. Expressing emotions. An idea made reality. That touches, stirs, pulls me in. Or pushes me away. That does something to me and won’t let me go.

A painting on my wall. My eyes interpret it anew. I decide what I see. What I want to see. I am no longer a passive viewer – I create.

A painting on my wall. And on yours. And yours. Created together, each has found its place. Spatially separated but always connected.

A painting on my wall.

Daniel Hilgert

with passion

Discovering boundaries and stepping beyond them. Your limits. Artistic limits. No specific technique, no sketches, no rules. Just start. Enjoy the moment. Follow your instinct.

Feel yourself. Just let it happen. Surprise yourself. Have courage. Just leave out anything that really was unnecessary. Take an old idea and make it new. Taste the thrill of the unfamiliar. Impatient. Full of expectation. Driven. Fulfilled. Fail. Get up. Keep going.

Out of courage. Out of passion. Because you have to.

Exhibition at Kühberger & Haas Architects, Steyr, 2019

Daniel Hilgert has always been strongly influenced by spaces and their atmosphere - in their private form as a home for individuals and families, in their public form as a meeting point for society, and in their conceptual form as places of internal freedom...

Perfection is the drive

Convention is the chain

Change is the opportunity
Spontaneity frees

Reduction attracts

Minimalism as perfection
