Peter Weibel


Peter Weibel was born in Columbia in 1961, grew up in Switzerland,

and uses his artist's brushes to combine the vibrant colours of the South American continent with the meditative forms of the Northern Hemisphere.

His paintings express an unspeakable joie-de-vivre and liveliness, which directly touch the dreams and yearning of the beholder. For the artist it's less important to present a rational analysis of his imagery, but rather to convey a depth of feeling, as when we are moved by the richness of birdsong.

Peter Weibel lives and works in the newly-built Artelier Korona in Lausen. Visitors are welcome all the year round.
