Born in Vienna, Hermann Nitsch (b. 1938) is an Austrian artist who works in experimental and multimedia modes. Nitsch received training in painting during the time he studied at the Wiener Graphische Lehr-und Versuchanstalt.
He is called an "actionist" or a performance artist. He is associated with the Vienna Actionists, and like them conceived his art outside traditional categories of genre. Nitsch's abstract splatter paintings, like his performance pieces, established a theme of controlled violence, using bright reds, maroons, and pale grays that communicate organic mutilation.
