Peter Jungblut Of Bayerischer Rundfunk Aptly Describes Dingl's Art As "Bright And Bold, With An Immediately Apparent Humor, Yet Underpinned By A Despair Over A Society Disconnected From Nature And Humanity."

Inspired by Joseph von Eichendorff's poetic notion, 'A song sleeps in all things,' Toninho Dingl brings this romantic vision to life by transforming mundane objects like warning beams and electricity meters. 

Through his art, Dingl awakens the hidden beauty and poetic essence in these everyday items, infusing them with new significance, especially in times of crisis. 

‍This approach reflects a deep connection between the natural world and humanity, as Dingl reveals the underlying stories and beauty in the most ordinary of objects

‍His approach to art, akin to Gerhard Polt's* treatment of language, transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, a perspective echoed by Prof. Josef A. Standl of Passauer Neue Presse.

* Gerhard Polt is a renowned German comedian and satirist known for his sharp-witted and often critical commentary on Bavarian and German social life, culture, and politics.
