Hey I'm Martin Bütler


Trained in fine craftsmanship, and still working as a dental technician, I was always drawn into the creative field, whether in dancing,  music or in drawing and painting. In 2013, after a preliminary course, I completed a bachelor's degree in fine arts at the Lucerne Hochschule für Design & Kunst. After excursions in the field of sound and film, I now focus on my original passion of painting. A large part of my inspiration in the newer works I borrow from traditional patterns and ornaments from all over the world. 

A study exchange in Jerusalem, Middle East at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in 2012, where I came into contact with arabesques and frequent stays in South India have certainly influenced me. In that sense most of my works have a decorative touch. My focus of interest is very much a playful curiosity about the coming together of colours and shapes in their endless ways.

I live and work surrounded by mountains and lakes in the beautiful City of Lucerne.
