As ear­ly as 1971, Krems­may­er was artis­ti­cal­ly active in the graph­ic work­shop in the Trakl­haus in Salzburg, around the cir­cle of Her­bert Bre­it­er and Rudolf Hradil. After com­plet­ing his stud­ies at the Acad­e­my of Fine Arts in Vien­na (mas­ter class Anton Lehm­den) study vis­its to Paris and Barcelona fol­lowed. Dur­ing his two-year study vis­it to Barcelona (1982 to 1984) the artist met fel­low artists Her­nan­dez Pijuan and Antoni Tàpies. Fur­ther work stays took him to New Mex­i­co, New York and Texas.

The con­fronta­tion with dig­i­tal image con­struc­tions led him in the 1990s to a mul­ti-lay­ered col­or rep­re­sen­ta­tion in which the abstract and the fig­u­ra­tive are inter­wo­ven.

In 2012, the com­pa­ny moved to a stu­dio on the site of a for­mer bread fac­to­ry in Vien­na. Her­mann Krems­may­er lives and works in Vienna.
