Oliver BuBu Schibli, Marcel Lütolf, Milena Mortati & Zalaba Design
Oliver Schibli, frischgebackener International Emerging Artist Award Dubai Gewinner und Marcel Lütolf zeigen ihre neuesten Werke in dieser urbanen Location. Da die Kunst der beiden Künstler auch immer mit Musik entsteht, wird Dich unser DJ Gleichschritt quasi in das Studio der Künstler transferieren und Dir neue Schweizer Kunst präsentieren, die Du Dir definitiv nicht entgehen lassen solltest. An der Bar wirst Du von den genauso sympathischen, wie auch gutaussehenden Herren von der Gasometer Garage bedient.
Marcel Lütolf wird seine einzigartigen und tiefsinnigen Skulpturen und Oliver BuBu Schibli seine kraftvollen und detaillierten Bilder sowie einen Art Car präsentieren. Neu im Programm sind Milena Mortati (LA) mit ihrer Stripped Buck Naked Photo Serie und Zalaba Design mit ihren einzigartigen Design Möbel. Ein Abend für Hedonisten. Deine Augen und Ohren werden mit neuen Reizen verwöhnt und wir freuen uns sehr auf Dich.
Meine Arbeiten sind angesiedelt im Niemandsland zwischen Kultur, Ästhetik und der Realität. Dies ist mein Auftrag und meine Berufung. Ignoranz ist die Kunst mit offenen Augen nicht sehen zu wollen.

Oliver BuBu Schibli - Biography
I am a self-taught artist who began to paint in his early years in school. During this time and until 2012 he never showed his work to the public. After his early experiments in painting and art he decides to do a 4 years apprenticeship as a sign maker and went to the visual school of art in Bern Switzerland. There he learned all the technique with writing with feathers, work with gold leaf, the color gauge, screen printing and all the other important aspects of creating. That was a very important part of learning the basics of the materials, techniques and possibilities. After this important part came a dark period in his life, after his mother did suicide he went threw a 10 years of creative blockades and trying to forget. In this period, he actually creates not a lot of pieces but with the age of 30 he started again thinking and creating serious art. Always with a normal job in the office during the day, he worked in the evenings and every free minutes and get more and more sure what he wants. He wants to be one of the most successful artist in the world.
With this goal in mind, he made a life changing decision in March 2014 to become a full time artist. This has given him the opportunity to find his unique style. In this year he left Switzerland to work in Asia away from every deflection in Zurich and had his own Art Gallery in Thailand for 1 year. In this time he work almost every day 15 hours on his technique and ideas and experimented a lot. He also started to produce different accessories with his art on it and created his own Art brand. That was the born of BUBU Collection.
After this time in Asia and lots of hours of experimenting and learn a lot about the production process he decided to go back to Switzerland and get his art career to another level.
Oliver BuBu Schibli - Artist Statement
Painting is a personal journey to know myself and I am currently at the beginning of that journey. I’m inspired by my passion for nature, travel and music. In my work I travel between islands, forests, cultures, colours, tunes and create artworks that reflect this; it can be just the colours from a leaf on a tree or a track from Sade or Mozart.
My work range is from paintings, furniture, murals to art lights (mannequin-lamps). In my figures I uniquely capture emotional states, creating a gallery filled with dreams and passions. My paintings are full of harmony and colour but also maintain a chic-chaos with my unique Lifelines. These Lifelines show how complicated life can be, but also that there is always a way if you want.
Each of these Lifelines are created spontaneously and are always based on an 'in the moment' decision that dictates the direction and which element comes next. Exactly like in life when every decision you make brings you to another point where the next decision waits of you.
Colour transmits the soul of my work and adds more sense to the themes that I paint. The use of colour, contrast and also the composition are never left to fate in my paintings, it´s often very calculated. I love to work with gold leaf because Gold in its physical state, by its very nature, extravagance and is linked to masculine energy and the power of the sun. Optimistic and positive, gold adds richness and warmth to everything with which it is associated - it illuminates and enhances other things around it.
The materials which I work in are gold leaf and acrylic on canvas or directly on furniture or murals. I never stop experimenting. I like to explore different themes, or different styles, always evolving and learning.
For me canvas is a place of meditation and construction, of immersion in the past and projection in the future. I like to move on the border between figures and abstraction and I have boundless faith in clean and bright colours.

Milena Mortati is an italian Artist raised in Zurich, Switzerland now recites in Los Angeles, CA. She has had many exhibits in the United States and is honored to launch her new mixed media series "STRIPPED BUCK NAKED" in London which will mark the beginning of an exhibit showcasing in 10 different cities this year.
"What inspires me as an artist in the world is unaltered beauty. Some may call it flaws I see it as "unique perfections".
Whenever I see them I feel the need to capture these rare gifts. They can be found simply in the rawness of a person or caught in a truthful moment, event, even emotion...
The skull is a representation of the idea that we are all made of the same. The only difference lies in our life condition, the way we feel about our fortune or misfortunes. And the naked body symbolizes the unapologetic truth of our body, the privilege to experience this life in a box made of skin that can not be altered.
In a world ruled by mainstream Selfies I'd like to emphasize the intriguing beauty found in individuality."
