MARCUS EGLI


Works  
Biography


Was born in 1957 in Zurich - † 2016

Mountains, in the Canton of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. He established himself as a self-taught artist in 1985.

Egli is one of Switzerland's most successful sculptors today with his distinctive work in aluminum. Starting with raw aluminum, he heats, hammers, saws, welds, and polishes each piece by hand, making each figure unique. Marcus Egli creates aluminum figures which he calls "Hominium".

He questioned about our relationship to the world and our relationship to our history. His themes are universal, anonymity, loneliness and multiplicity. His artistic process refers us at our own image.
