CLEMENS MARIA FUCHS was born in Vienna, Austria (March 11th 1982). While in school his father Michael Fuchs already trained him in the skills of old master drawing and painting.
In 2001 he moves to Florence, Italy where he studies drawing and painting. First he attends at the Angel Academy of Art and then at the Charles H. Cecil Studios where he is trained in the art of painting portraits and the human figure. Essential to this training is the painting from life and the use of the Sight-Size Technique (see Portraits).
After completing his studies in Florence he moves back to Vienna to work on commissions. He also presents his work in numerous exhibitions in Austria and Germany.
After two years he returns to Florence to teach portraiture and figure painting at the Charles H. Cecil Studios.
In 2012 he works, in colaboration with his father Michael Fuchs, on an altarpiece for the seminary church of Guatemala City, Guatemala.
In 2014 he starts work on a mayor altarpiece of St. Agnes of Bohemia for the baroque church of St. Carlo Borromeo in Vienna. He completes it in 2015.
CLEMENS MARIA FUCHS frequently is a guest teacher in various workshops and returns to Florence where he continues teaching portrait painting at the Charles H. Cecil Studios.
