Walitzki's oeuvre combines oil painting, mixed media and cutting edge technology. In the first step, the working process begins with a preliminary drawing with watercolors to determine the composition and texture. It is then transferred to a panel on rice paper, lasercut and finished with oil glazes. A large part of the artist’s work is influenced by the lush rain forests of the Pacific Northwest and the artistic baroque ornaments of Walitzki's native Bavaria.
