Serge Nyfeler

Born in 1963 - Switzerland

BIOGRAPHY

Serge Nyfeler was born 1963 in Samedan, Switzerland. He currently lives and works in Bern, Switzerland as well as in Justiniac, France. As a child of two artists he got into the art world very early. He spent the wild '80s in Zurich along with other artists such as Pipilotti Rist.

The style of Serge Nyfeler is colorful and picturesque. Influence of the Impressionists is evident, in terms of lighting and color palette. On the other hand, Nyfeler’s wild, harsh contrasts and visible, expressive brushstrokes reveal the Expressionist painter in him.

When it comes to subject matters one thing is certain – Serge Nyfeler has developed his own personal manner of depicting our present world. He captures and notes his impressions of the world we live creating works of art characterized by a surreal atmosphere and discomfort that arouses at a subconscious level.

In Nyfeler’s expressive paintings, people are put in relation to their own roots and their environment. Often disastrous reality with plenty of references to current affairs is shown in the context of humorous and weird perspectives.
