In his work he subjects themes such as pain, injury and violence. Thereby his work frequently includes controversial and taboo topics from recent history. The image of the injured child is still a main subject of his work. In the 70ies his hyper-realistic images of injured and bandaged children made Helnwein popular.
Even motifs of American Pop Culture, like Disney characters, are developing threatening forms in Helnwein’s work. In his self-portraits Helnwein depicts himself as a tortured and defeated man. The confrontation with national socialism is another central theme of his work.
