Streicher has engaged in a variety of media and styles and is known for his innovative approaches. Streicher began his artistic career in 1993 and has since created an impressive range of works. Since 2009, he has been living and working in Mallorca, Spain. Before pursuing his artistic endeavors, he worked in a technical profession in the refractory and automotive industry from 1991 to 1998. During this time, he was also active in the arts and creatively explored technical subjects. He participated in exhibitions and worked independently on artistic projects.
In 1999, he was involved in painting the passenger aircraft NIKKI LAUDA in collaboration with Werner Spitzer under the guidance of Prof. Ernst Fuchs. In the same year, he participated in the Environmental Day exhibition with the work "WHEEL of NATURE" at the Mercedes Benz Museum in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA. In 2000, he was commissioned to design an Airbus A321 for Aero Lloyd.
In 2001, he was commissioned to design and provide technical and artistic direction for the construction of the gastronomy temple "DER PHARAONENTEMPEL" in Graz, Austria, which was completed in the same year. He has also created sculptures, paintings, fountains, and performative artworks.
A notable phase of his artistic development was from 2002 to 2009. Images were created by applying paint using explosives, representing destruction and simultaneous creation of the artwork - an expression of death and rebirth. These works are characterized by explosive dynamism and aesthetics. They showcase Streicher's vision of representing art and creation directly. The pivotal trigger for this creation was the image presentation "Heart of the World" together with three colleagues at the Marriott World Trade Center NYC on September 8, 2001, followed by the subsequent events.
From 2009 onwards, the multiplication of his works played an important role in expressing creation, evolution, and art. Both chaotic and deliberately ordered unfoldments and metamorphoses are created. This leads to the formation of alpha works, series, variations, and, subsequently, the representation of transformation or elevation of consciousness in the HYPERORIGINAL - art expressed as a mirror of creation - described in detail in his book "STREICHER-Evolution 001".
Andreas Streicher is an experienced artist who enriches the art world with his diverse works and creative approaches. His works are valued in collections around the world, and he has established a reputation for his unique artistic vision.

After his stay until 9.9.2001 at the World Trade Center N.Y.C. and the following happenings...
...for seven years - guns and bombs were used to create rather than destroy ...
...it created a vision and a multitude of explosive works ...
BOMB ART - Colores instead of grenades for a bautiful world - explosion as cause of creation
... a multitude of bomb-art-works and projects were shooted from 2002 - 2009
The works shot from 2002 to 2009 seem to unfold in decorative mirror images. While emerges chaotic appearance in the explosive original creations (manifestation by explosion), in metamorphosis, a consciously ordered unfolding takes place, which develops and forms species in sequence.
The result is digital alpha works, series and variants. The multiplication proves to be a necessary instrument for the expression of Creation - Evolution - Art. The increase and resolution of the respective topic takes place in the creation of the Hyperoriginal. The intensive and immediate discussion provides the answer.
