I call myself EpiCurious, and this is how I paint

Born in 1971, Swiss-based artist Nicole Bron CHappuis (NBCH) started developing her taste for painting in high school with art teacher Pierre Keller, director of the University of Art and Design in Lausanne, Switzerland, from 1995 to 2011. Exploring the essence and the continuity of each experience and translating it into a firework of colors, geometry, curves and squirts, has been NBCH’s greatest delight since then. What is important to the artist is to be able to live each instant as intensely as possible, and to be able to transmit these moments of intensity through her paintings. Using an abstract style, she represents the important events of her life through geometry, color and texture. Natural sand and acrylic squirts provide a balance to her work, along with constant research on graphics, shades and textures. Her intense monochromes, where sand is worked into the pieces with a spatula, create “windows” in which solid colors are expertly mastered and unite to produce so many vibrations. This balance, acquired through serenity and a touch of insanity, is what makes NBCH’s work so captivating. In the United States, her paintings can be seen at Art People Gallery, a premier San Francisco art gallery, where her work is on permanent exhibit.
Wishing to continue uninfluenced, NBCH has remained self-educated. For more than 8 years, she has exhibited successfully in prestigious galleries throughout Switzerland. In 2007, she won the Spectator Award at the “En Beauregard Art Awards" and has been invited to present her work in various European countries as well as in San Francisco, USA (2011).
Over the next few months, NBCH’s artwork will be showcased at the following international venues:
- BeSt³ Educational Fair (8-11 March 2012) - Galerie M, Vienna, Austria
- Liberated Dreams Exhibit (21-29 April 2012) - Trevisan International Art, Ferrara, Italy
- Art Beijing (29 April-2 May 2012) - Beijing, China
An invitation has also been extended to NBCH to show her works at the following international venues:
- Swiss Art Gate (23 Aug.–23 Sept. 2012) - Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
- Elextra, International Fair for Elegance & Extravagance (28–30 Sept. 2012) - Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
NBCH’s return to Switzerland is planned for 30 April-27 May 2013 in La Grange at Jouxtens.
