Original screenprint. View over the roofs of Regensburg. After studying at the Breslau School of Arts and Crafts (with Peter Kowalski) and the Art Academy from 1928 to 1932, he spent half a year as a scholarship holder at the Art Academy in Italy. After his return, the political situation with the seizure of power by the National Socialists prevented Ulfig from establishing himself as an artist, whose early work was based on Expressionism, which was banned at the time. Ulfig worked out of necessity as a sign painter and stage designer at the Stadttheater Breslau, was stationed in France as a soldier in World War II (here he got to know and appreciated a French-influenced, elegant variety of expressionist art) and finally became a prisoner of war in Bohemia (CSR). Released in 1945, he began his actual artistic development in the freedom of the later Federal Republic with his arrival in Regensburg (almost the entire painting work before 1945 has been lost). In 1946 he became a member of the newly founded artists' association Donauwaldgruppe; From 1947 to 1949 he had his first gallery exhibitions, and since the early 1950s his artistic success has increased, making him probably the most important visual artist in East Bavaria in the second half of the 20th century. With study trips to Italy, Greece, Egypt, Ireland, southern France and Holland in the early 1960s, he now expanded his artistic subject areas to include the landscapes of Europe. Numerous individual exhibitions in Germany and abroad, membership in the Munich artists' cooperative and the Esslinger artists' guild bear witness to Ulfig's appreciation.
