    Manfred Kielnhofer * January 28, 1967 in Haslach an der Mühl; is an Austrian painter, sculptor, designer and photographer.
    Kielnhofer visited the technical College Linz where he took his final exam in 1995. he was engaged with technique and design and art on building lead him to his special way of art. Since 2000 he lives as an free artist in Linz. 2005 he launched Gallery Artpark in Linz, one year later he launched Gallery Fotopark.
    The „timeguards“ of the Austrian artist Manfred Kielnhofer are the top of a some years lasting development. Dealing with room-concepts, sculptures and installations on one hand and the being engaged with mystic experiences and religion on the other hand lead the artist to these strange characters. 2006 the first of these figures was created. It reminds us of a walking monk, who seems to be lost in something. Kielnhofer puts his timeguard in public places like ancient castlers, old mines, main squares or in parks. Kielnhofers „timegurads“ come and go, nobody knows where they appear the next time. They let us never forget that we are always watched. (Critics by: Martina Gansterer). 2009 Kielnhofer develops a new sort of act photographs. Therefore he builds a waterplate in his studio, where he can take photos of models sitting or lying likely on a mirror. 2010 he developed the concept of the Light Art Biennale Austria 2010 together with Martina Schettina. The Interlux-Chair, Kielnhofers artwork shown at the biennial, was registered in the design-database of the MAK, the Museum for applied arts in Vienna.
