Passion and aesthetics are the focus of the Swiss artist with French roots Michaël Lucerne, born in 1964. As an autodidact, he portraits the presence in the neo-expressionist style. Several study visits between 1992 and 2002 in the USA, Morocco, Egypt, Slovakia, Italy and also France represent a decisive source of inspiration.
The interplay of various techniques, his style of life and the personality associated with it form an individual world in which Michaël Lucerne moves freely. He does not limit himself to only one art genre as he also deals with sculpture, photography, design and graphics. The main focus of his work is on motifs such as the human body and its expressive artistic realization. But also nature elements, architecture as well as social phenomena are found in the works of Lucerne, of which many are placed in the public space.
