Louis Atelouis is an experienced Swiss artist who has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Switzerland, Germany and the USA. His artworks reflect ironic social criticism and he is always looking for approaches and techniques that do not yet exist, like the "Pleat-Art" developed by him, in which the canvases are crumpled, painted and ironed.
He composes artworks that at first appear perfect, precisely shaped and harmoniously balanced, but that reveal intentional irregularities, cracks and scars as you get closer. This is Atelouis's way of representing life.
