Happy New Year 2019!

2018 is about to end and 2019 to start.

December was a great home run with 3 Solo Exhibitions in Shanghai, Chongqing and Chengdu. As the whole year, also those 3 exhibitions focus on “Flow of Color”.

The last one opened on December 27, 2018 in Chongqing – “Secret Garden of the Artist – Antonio Wehrli 2018 Solo Exhibition Chongqing”, at VA Gallery, on 2nd level of “World Financial Center” downtown Chongqing.

I had expected this blog post to be finished here - but while searching for the photos to add, I realized that this is some important news from 2018 that I would like to share too:

Honorary Citizen of Chengdu Pidu Ancient Town

On October 28, 2018, I became Honorary Citizen of Chengdu Pidu Ancient Town. Mayor Liu Songyue gave me the Honorary Credential during the town's Grapefruit Festival.

Here below a very special art-wall that I did for the 5th Chengdu Creativity and Design Week:

The art wall shows 8 years of work from 2011 to 2018 - various styles of practice: abstract Structurism, figurative Structurism, abstract Gravity, Photo Gravity, abstract Centrifugal, figurative Centrifugal and abstract Music Painting - and art from 7 countries: China, Switzerland, India, Korea, Thailand, Cambodia and Scotland.
