Paul Flora was born in South Tyrol in 1922. In 1928 his family moved to Innsbruck. From 1942 to 1944 he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Flora was recruited into the army in 1944 during World War II. After his American war time captivity, he returned to Innsbruck in 1945. Ever since then he was a freelance artist. He worked as an illustrator for several newspapers. In 1966 he joined the Biennale in Venice. Flora died in Innsbruck in 2009. In the beginning of his artistic career he was strongly influenced by the art of Alfred Kubin. Already before 1950 he had radically broken with the dense hatching and had turned to the fine, thin line, delicate drawing. Consequently, he developed a fine distinctive line technology. His ironic, sarcastic drawings received international recognition.
