Angelika Vormittag, born in 1967 in Vienna, Austria, places a distinct emphasis on nature and wildlife in her paintings. Before pursuing her art studies at the University of Vienna, where she studied zoology, she gained profound insights into the diversity of life forms. Expressive use of color and an abstracting visual language characterize her works, capturing glimpses of landscapes in their ecological primal state as habitats for various species.

The fascinating world of insects, described by Vormittag as "mysteriously different, highly specialized, and adventurously beautifully shaped," constitutes a central aspect of her art. Her choice of subjects, marked by subjectivity and empathetic observational skills, extends from the differentiated life of insects to the biological microcosm.

Angelika Vormittag's artistic expression can be associated with the idea of écriture féminine, challenging the theory of expressivity as a masculine trait. The texture of her works is directly related to body movement, and the rhythm of her gestures is influenced by the character of each subject.

Her formal education includes a degree in zoology from the University of Vienna from 1986 to 1992 and a painting degree from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna from 1997 to 2001 under the guidance of Prof. Hubert Schmalix, where she graduated with honors.
