Let’s have a closer look at the fascinating artist and art works which represent Swiss Made:
In his creative practice, Thierry Furger deals with the dynamic-eternal or finite process of graffiti, which is caused by graffiti removal and overpainting. His pictures, however, always capture a moment of transience.
Sigi ‚DARE‘ von Koeding developed a complex style with almost perfectly arranged letters and pseudonyms, which gave him the opportunity to create a large international network. His unique works are all underlined by his distinctive 3D – style , which comes into play particularly in large-scale graffiti. His fine and neatly made sketches show his precision as well as his creative approach.
Gaspard Louane combines his personal history and his personal motifs that are part of his own journey of live experience, whether in the literal or metaphorical sense.
Still Alive’s paintings give insight into the dark and most anonymous and illegal world of graffiti writing. Through his imagery, the artist conveys the values and interests of writers.
Michel FR loves to paint and draw on any material he can find, but he has a preference for cardboard and wood. He is fascinated by those materials, because they are often old and marked by time, in this case wood.
Maja Hürst’s murals as well as her studio-based artworks are especially depicting animals which transport their symbolism on humans. Hürst’s style can be described as multi-layered, graphic, containing a symbolic value and thus create a unique radiance, eclectic in material, technique and colors.
Whether outside or in the studio, curved lines, dynamic swings and a tag here and there are the basis of Sweetuno’s body of work. Therefore, he is always looking for connections between his graffiti practice outside and the painting in the studio. He continuously develops the letters of his name in order to raise interest and passion about letters, colors and forms.
