Short summary Curriculum Vitae

From 1966 to 1978, Flörl attended middle and elementary school in Wörgl and completed an apprenticeship as a woodturner. He then pursued studies in sculpture at the University of Applied Arts in Innsbruck from 1978 to 1982. Following this, he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, under the guidance of Franz Xaver Ölzant and Ferdinand Welz, from 1982 to 1987. Since 1987, he has worked as an independent artist, shuttling between Vienna and his chosen home in Wildschönau with his wife and two sons. Additionally, he was affiliated with the Brotherhood of Santa Maria dell'Anima and the Vienna Künstlerhaus at various points in his career.

Since 1987, Hubert Flörl has created over 60 large-scale sculptures in bronze and stone. Some notable examples include the following. 

Four bronze sculptures titled "Watercourse" for the General Directorate of Donauversicherung. Five large-scale sculptures, reaching heights of up to 3 meters, for the company KTW in Kirchbichl. A 4.6-meter-tall sculpture for the Unicampus Süd in Dortmund.

A 33-meter-long watercourse for the company Reich in Mellrichstadt, Germany.

Nine bronze sculptures titled "Canticle of the Sun of St. Francis of Assisi," standing at a height of 3.20 meters.

"Mother Earth," carved from a marble block standing at a height of 5.30 meters, for which he received the Theodor Körner Prize. Sculptures of a tennis player and a golfer in Kitzbühel at Schloss Kaps, both in bronze and over three meters in height. The "Franz Xaver Gruber Peace Trail" represents one of the artist's largest projects.
