ABOUT THE ARTISTS

MARCEL BERNET

Born in 1958, was already interested in art as a youngster and wanted to attend the school of arts and crafts. However, he first did an apprenticeship at a bank, later got a degree in business administration and finally worked as an entrepreneur and journalist in communications for several years. Thus, Bernet only discovered sculpture at a late stage in life. Today he works as a freelance artist and coach. With a subtle feel for his figures, he works on whole tree trunks with different-sized chainsaws. His figurative wood sculptures are made from one piece and colored with pigments. They play with different attitudes, which Bernet perceives in his everyday life. Since 2012 he has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions and his works are displayed in public and private spaces. Bernet lives and works in the Zurich area. Price list.

Making Of: Art in Time Lapse

VELIMIR ILIŠEVIĆ

Velimir Ilišević, was born in 1965 in former Yugoslavia and moved to Switzerland at the age of 24. Ilišević’s roots as a painter lie in the tradition of classical modernism, but he has long since freed himself from his great idols Vincent van Gogh or Chaim Soutine to achieve his own pictorial language saturated with experience. He finds his motifs in everyday life. In a playfully associative way, he transforms these motifs and gives space to what is difficult to communicate. His works reveal a powerful, yet very sensitive painting style with strong color application. He works both on canvas and on paper. Since 1990, Ilišević has participated in numerous exhibitions in Switzerland and abroad. His works are featured in significant public and private collections. Ilišević lives and works in Stein am Rhein and Berlin. Price list.
