Anton Schön was born in Dresden, former GDR in 1985 and raised in southern Austria. There he was educated in industrial design and mechanical engineering. For his studies in visual arts he moved back to Dresden. He graduated from the  Hfbk-Dresden with the master degree in the class for conceptual painting by Prof. Christian Sery. After several years of independent work as an freelance artist he moved to Hamburg in 2021.


Schöns paintings show both the heritage of an eastern German painting tradition and a con- temporary conception of colour and form. His ideas and concepts are strongly influenced by car design and mobility in general. His works were shown in various group shows in Germany and at solo shows in Vienna, Berlin, Dresden and Hamburg.
