Mirada Fine Art is thrilled to not only introduce our newest artist, Stefan Geissbühler, to the gallery, but to do so with a spectacular exhibition titled 'vibrant INTERACTIONS.'  The exhibition runs from March 23rd through April 28th.  An opening reception with the artist will take place on Saturday, March 23rd from 4-6pm.

Born in Interlaken Switzerland, Stefan Geissbühler gravitated to creating art from the time he was very young.  The beauty of his surroundings continually served as inspiration, embedding the belief he espouses today — “Nature is the master of creating beauty, but in creating my art I hope to contribute to that beauty, if in a very small way.”

Stefan initially contributed that beauty through culinary art, channeling his creativity through food.  Life serendipitously intervened when he shattered his ankle in the ‘90s.  His leg was still in a cast when he moved from Switzerland to Colorado. Unable to stand for the required long hours as a chef, his supportive wife encouraged him to put aside the toque (chef’s hat) and apron and pursue his true passion, art. Embracing that advice, he spent four years of healing finding his voice as an artist and experimenting with a wide range of media.  Nearly a decade later, his career sky-rocketed when a gallery in his native Switzerland showed his work in a two-man exhibit, showing nearly 70 paintings he’d created during his self-imposed training.

 

Referring to his style as ‘New Century Modern,’ Geissbühler imbues each work with a mid-century aesthetic combined with an abstract expressionist feel. The vibrant color palette and distinctly unique style makes every painting sing visually. Inspired by travel, nature, architecture and music, Stefan strives to instill a personality into even static subject matter. His preferred ‘canvas’ is hardboard, which provides him with a durable surface that supports his technique incorporating spackle knives and brayers (a rubber roller historically used in printing/print making.) These unusual tools allow him to disperse acrylic color into unique shapes and expressive lines, resulting in pieces saturated with whimsical human qualities. He finishes most pieces with handcrafted frames of cradled oak panels stained a dark ebony to set off his vibrant paintings.

Although his work can be found in both public and private collections throughout the world, Stefan Geissbühler loves meeting his collectors in person. His work is meant to instill joy, express positive energy and lift the spirits of each viewer.
