Painter and Sculptor
Versatile, innovative, individual
approach, international reputation
Oskar Buchs, who has lived for many
years in Gstaad in the Bernese Oberland, is a very versatile artist.
Regardless of the medium used, he has remained true to his style
throughout his creative period, continuing to develop it and evolve
his own singular style, disregarding fashionable trends.
His works invite the viewer to feel
his way into them, to explore their depths, to succumb to their
magical effect, their inner vibrations. The viewer must try to take
in and perceive their richness, their rhythms and sounds. When you
analyse the works of Oskar Buchs, you move into a different world,
usually a world full of light, joy and humour but sometimes also
full of secrets and riddles.
