Swiss artist Claudia Mini is a painter and printmaker. Claudia is an abstract artist who is especially interested in pattern. A gifted colorist, she uses a seemingly inexhaustible vocabulary of various lines and shapes. At times, Claudia’s monotypes and acrylic paintings have the look of street graffiti, other times, she appears to allude to topographies of imaginary places. Biomorphic shapes, cellular structures, and plant life also appear in her work, always transformed in the prism of abstraction. The artist’s paintings represent a dialog with the subconscious and are an invitation to freedom and joy.
Ever since Claudia can remember, she was interested in creativity and using color, words, music and movement to produce artworks. Her development as an artist was partly through personal explorations, partly with the help of professional artistic training. While in high school, Claudia attended photography workshops, followed by a screen printing course at the School of Design in Bern. For the last eighteen years, she has been teaching creative design classes in primary schools.
