Frederic Moschberger

Fred Moschberger is a Hobart based Pen & Ink artist specializing in Tasmanian wildlife.  He has been producing art for the last few years from his studio and is a self-taught artist.

In a world where time seems to rush by ever faster and where our brain is literally saturated with digital visual stimulation, he explains that ‘we need to make a conscious effort to stop the distractions and take the time to reflect on the beauty and stunning variety of life offered in Nature’.

Fred primarily uses Archival Inks Stippling/Dot work (Pointillism) which is the creation of patterns simulating varying degrees of solidity or shading by using small dots. Pen & Ink Stippling has a unique way of highlighting details and contrast and Fred is ever striving to perfect the shading until the absence of colour is not perceived as a loss but rather as an advantage.
