Patternbank are loving the work of Husmann/Tschaeni (Michael Husmann Tschaeni & Mira Tschaeni)- an artist couple that are based in Switzerland and both studied at the College of Art in Lucerne. They have exhibited between New Delhi, Los Angeles and Melbourne. They work backward, painting in layers on the reverse of acrylic glass, using different materials, such as enamel, oil colour, watercolour, crayon, glitter, and spray. It is like if two completely different, somewhat incompatible picture languages collided when they started working together. But somehow they manage to create pictures, stories, and installations together, without having to change their own individual styles. Enjoy more of their work here & on their Instagram.
– Patternbank asked the creative duo what creatively inspires you?
We are inspired by everything surrounding us. Our Children, our animals, the lake, the sky, the beetle walking between the grass, beetroot juice dripping down, the light shining through the leaves, the cells building our body, the vibration of a flying plane, a crater of the moon and the stars from near and far. We travel o lot for our work and enjoy the different surroundings and inspirations.
