Antonius spent some years in the theater and show business in the 1970s. engagements as DJ, dancers and actor, ia. in the musical "HAIR" and in commercial theater plays on stages in Vienna, Zurich, Berlin and other cities.
Eventually tired of everything, the search for something new led to painting and above all to photography. First awards, prizes and magazine covers rewarded hard work and efforts.
In the further course Antonius crossed the styles and genres and started with fashion, still life, architecture and nude photography. So he photographed in the fashion capitals of Paris and New York and made reportages for Cosmopolitan in South America. Later he became Creative Director for Digitalvision, the first company for computer animation in Felix Austria.
