WELCOME Oliver Schibli Art Portfolio — The works of Oliver are an idyllic paradise of visual harmonies, inspired by the beauty of ancient art paired with new world problems. An immersive visual experience that invites us into his golden world. His works integrates the labor-intensive, ancient technique of hand gilding.

“For me canvas is a place of meditation.” Oliver’s work pairs the decadent and the minimal, the spectacular and the invisible, seeking to heighten the experience of the spectator by creating immersive environments that transport the viewer into other worlds. The boundless nature of sky and ocean, provoking a striking emotional response. What interests him most about Gold is its scarcity and the emotional response that Gold evokes. Beyond symbolizing opulence and wealth, it manifests a feeling of refinement that is often lost in today’s disposable culture. By listening to his higher self, the part of all of us that is connected to universal truth, the work creates Oliver as much as he creates the work.

TIME IS PRECIOUS Don’t Waste It!

T

his series is about Life, Death and how we spend our time on Mother Earth.

On a grey, cold and rainy day in November 2017 a friend of mine just died of cancer. I was creating in my Studio when I got the sad message and I was thinking about Life, Death and how short the whole life cycle can be. I thought about my struggle and my chosen way as an artist and at the same time I realised that money is so unimportant if your are not healthy or you have to do something you don’t Love. In this moment I was looking to my watch and got lost in the Beauty of this wonderful clockwork, these beautiful circles and lines. The clock was ticking with its elegant mechanics and I felt deep inside whatever happens I will go my way as an Artist because this is what makes me happy and this what I am here for. From this situation I started to create paintings which the composition is inspired by the Beauty and Elegance of clockworks and with a minimal color pallete with the following meanings of the elements and mediums within it. Meaning of the Elements | Gold The rare and precious metal from fallen Stars which is associated with the wisdom of ageing and fruition is created a long time ago in a Supernova far away from our Mother Earth and it will be still here when we are long gone. The Gold stands for how precious Life is and we should not waste one minute of it. | Numbers The precious minutes and days we waste for something meaningless or we invest for something important what makes us happy. They are created in a special technique. This way they create beautiful Shadows on the Canvas at the right angle of the sun. | Dots The Dots stand for all our beloved Lost Souls on our way, that’s also the reason that they are also created in this technique. This way they create beautiful Shadows on the Canvas

at the right sun angle, like they do stay in our Hearts forever. | Ultramarine Blue = My special pure pigment handmade acrylic Ultramarine Blue stands for the Infinity of all Lost Ones we keep in our hearts. In the ancient time blue was associated with the sky and with divinity. The Egyptian god Amun could make his skin blue so that he could fly, invisible, across the sky. Blue could also protect against evil and representing the eye of God, to protect us from misfortune. Ultramarine is a deep blue color and a pure pigment which was originally made by grinding lapis lazuli into a powder. The name derives from Middle Latin ultramarinus, literally “beyond the sea” because it was imported from Asia by sea. | Cosmos Black My special pure pigment handmade acrylic Comos Black stands for death, the Cosmos and our unwritten way. For the ancient people, black had positive associations; being the color of fertility. It was the color of Anubis, the god of the underworld and offered protection against evil to the dead. Black was one of the first colors used in art. | Porcelain White My special pure pigment handmade acrylic Porcelain White stands for Life, the positivity and Fragility. In ancient civilisations, white was often associated with goddesses and mother’s milk and often associated with perfection, the good, honesty, cleanliness, the beginning, the new, neutrality, and exactitude. Black and white have often been used to describe opposites; particularly truth and ignorance, good and evil, the Dark Ages versus Age of Enlightenment. | Ruby Red My special pure pigment handmade acrylic stands for Courage, Passion and Love. In the ancient World, red was associated with life, activity, health, sexuality, joy, victory, happiness and good fortune. It is the color of celebration and that is what we should do every day until we leave. | Mediums Pure Pigment Handmade Acrylic Emulsion, Gold Leaf or Gold Metal Leaf, Wood

Oliver Schibli - Artist Statement An immersive visual experience that invites us into his golden world paved with a commanding blue hue and sometimes other striking color contrast. The works of Oliver are an idyllic paradise of visual harmonies, inspired by the beauty of ancient art and wall paintings paired with new world problems. This particular Ocean blue represents pure energy, and when used in tandem with pure gold - a metal that has shared origins with our human consciousness since time immemorial - it symbolizes my need to seek out that which is rare, precious, scarce, and pure on a universal level. His works integrates the labor-intensive, ancient technique of hand gilding. Oliver meticulously applies several layers of Gold Leaf to each of his canvases. Oliver explores concepts of infinity and greatness. One of the most striking elements of Oliver’s paintings is his use of Gold Leaf. Most of the Earth’s gold lies at its core, the metal’s high density having made it sink there in our planet’s youth. Virtually all gold discovered is considered to have been deposited by meteorites that contained the element. In essence Oliver is painting with metal from fallen stars. Oliver's work pairs the decadent and the minimal, the spectacular and the invisible, seeking to heighten the experience of the spectator by creating immersive environments that transport the viewer into other worlds. The boundless nature of sky and ocean, provoking a striking emotional response. What interests him most about Gold is its scarcity and the emotional response that Gold evokes. Beyond symbolizing opulence and wealth, it manifests a feeling of refinement that is often lost in today’s disposable culture. His new series “Time is precious - Don’t waste it” is all about how we spend our Time on Mother Earth and it’s a painting and Wall Sculpture series. By listening to his higher self, the part of all of us that is connected to universal truth, the work creates Oliver as much as he creates the work.

Oliver Schibli – Biography He is a self-taught artist that began in his early years at school. During this time and until 2012 he never showed his work to the publicly. After his early experiments in painting and art he decides to do a 4 years apprenticeship as a sign maker and went to the visual school of art in Bern, Switzerland. There he learned all the different techniques from writing with feathers, working with gold leaf, the color gauge, screen printing and all the other important aspects of creating. It was essential to learn the basics of the different materials, techniques and possibilities. Always with a normal job in the office during the day, he worked in the evenings and during every free minute and got more and more sure which direction he wanted to go. He was then sure that he wanted to become one of the most successful and known artists in the world. With this goal in mind, he made the life changing decision in March 2014 to become a full time artist. This has given him the opportunity to find his unique style. In the year 2014 he left Switzerland to work in Asia away from every deflection in Zurich and had his own Art Gallery in Thailand during one year. During this time he worked almost fifteen hours every day on his technique and ideas and experimented a lot. He also started to produce different accessories with his art on it and created his own Art brand. This was the birth of the BUBU Collection. After his time in Asia and lots of hours of experimenting and having learnt a lot about the production process he decided to go back to Switzerland and take his art career to another level. After his return to Switzerland he had 5 very successful Exhibitions in Zurich in 2015 and 2016. And then came the first big moment in his Artist Life, he won the International Emerging Artist Award in Dubai during Art Dubai in 2016. His winning Painting was presented to thousands of people during this time and this experience gave him the trust in himself to work even harder for his dream. Early 2017 he had his first Gallery Exhibition in Zurich and in June 2017 he was invited from the American 5 star Hotel Group Pullman Hotels & Resorts to their new launched global Art initiative "Artist Playground by Pullman". Nominated for the Global Art Award 2018 – No Shows in 2018 – Oliver is working on his new series “Time is Precious – Don’t Waste it!” Oliver Schibli Art | +41 78 866 24 57 | os@oliverschibli.com | www.oliverschibli.com
