Paint the change you want to see: Nicholas Platzer at TEDxVienna
Nicholas Platzer is an American who has been based in Vienna since 2005. 6 months after moving to Vienna, he opened INOPERAbLE Gallery with the intention of promoting artists he had befriended over the years, with the primary focus on graffiti and street artists. Over the years the Gallery has grown immensely and has shown hundreds of artists from across the globe. The Gallery has functioned not only as a place to show new art to a traditionally conservative city, but also as a hub for the underground scene. INOPERAbLE has organized numerous exhibitions, events, and mural projects in and around Austria. With his business partner Nathalie Halgand, Nicholas Platzer continues to use INOPERAbLE as a means to change the image of Vienna one wall at a time.
