My new website is at manfred.com.au
Illuminated by dreams, observation and introspection my works reflect on psychological processes and questions of meaning and significance, both personal and social.
Dictated by the concept, the works are in a variety of two-dimensional media: photographic, digital, and traditional.
Education and experience
Box Hill Institute, Dip. Visual Art. Monash University B.A. Ph.D.
Science academic and IT project manager before turning to art in 2001.
Man Fred was the pseudonym of Manfred Krautschneider from 2001 to 2009. However, online identity fraud caused me to transition to my birth name thereafter. The works are still signed "Manfred". If uncertain as to authenticity of work, please contact me using the email link at bottom of page.
