Born in 1985 in Germany. Veit Schmidleitner had an education as a Varnisher and received his apprenticeship diploma in 2007. He studied graphic design in Marbella / Spain. Back in Germany he worked as a post producer for photography and got into working with metal through his Father and Mentor Günter De Rosa.
Schmidleitner started creating large-scale metal sculptures in 2011 and assisted other artists to complete their works. While working on commissions, Schmidleitner developed a way of merging laser cutting with his unique painting technique which enabled colours and shapes to form his own visual language which commonly depicts religious and social occurrences. He uses cryptographic elements to develop a story that is not being told, but rather needs to be called into question and interpreted. Colours are given a specific meaning and coupled with theme and presentation. With the gloss surface, viewers are exposed from different angles, to their own reflection and are thus an interaction of the form and color of the artwork.
Veit Schmidleitner´s Atelier “Quantum Oddity” founded with Günter De Rosa in 2013 is also the base for Painter Marc Pilgaard Nielsen, Visual Artist Frank Hoffmann and Photographer Dai Lyn Power. Quantum Oddity describes the correlation between the act of creating and how to make everything out of nothing. To be foolish and curious. Question everything.
