Gabrielle Graessle

1956, Zurich, Switzerland.
He lives and works in the south of Spain.

Gabrielle Graessle was born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1956 and has been fascinated by painting and drawing since she was a child. She attended Zurich Art School for 5 years, where she completed a degree in graphic design. Her first exhibitions took place while she was still a student. During this time, she made mainly black and white charcoal drawings spontaneously depicting her personal imagery.

For 15 years, she was represented by various galleries in Switzerland. At the beginning of 2000, she and her partner emigrated to France and later to Spain, building and redesigning old houses. For years they moved from one renovation project to the next. At that time, her means of expression were mainly drawings and sketchbooks.

In 2015, she settled down in Andalusia. She decided to immerse herself completely in her imaginary world again and to express herself in large format, colored, intuitive and figurative paintings.

Her studio is located in a group of old cottages in the middle of nowhere. There are no distractions, and she can fully concentrate on her work in a secluded setting in nature. There she works on several canvases at the same time, creating multiple series of paintings.

At the same time, drawings are still an important part of her work. They are spontaneous expressions of her thoughts and stories. They are often the starting point for her painting.

In 2020, she restarted to present her art at art fairs in Barcelona and Madrid, and began to participate in group shows internationally, such as Germany, France and the UK.
