Linz *1921 - †2008 Linz
Ernst Balluf studied painting and graphics at the school for arts and crafts in Linz, before he worked as a cartoonist and illustrator for several newspapers. His oeuvre contains drawings, lithographs and mainly watercolours.
Balluf creates mainly landscapes and still lifes. His focus on the substance, on the marrow of a matter and his reduced colour palette lead to a certain degree of abstraction.
Ernst Balluf was a member of the Zülow-Group of the Mühlviertler artist’s guild.
