Herbert Hofer started as an interior designer and went on extensive travels through Europe and Africa. He settled in Rome which led him to begin filming. While filming he found inspiration in exotic locations, cultures and customs which are reflected in his artwork. Herbert uses color and abundant floral decoration in his artwork which conveys a sophisticated yet dreamlike quality. Hofer has gained international fame from world wide exhibitions and his work has been avidly collected wherever he has exhibited. Hofer's whimsical, brilliantly colored paintings evoke the joys of childhood in universal themes. He describes himself as "the Primitive Austrian" and his paintings as "modern primitives". His work represents his own search for paradise in a spirit of optimist, joy and peace.
