Omar Rigoni

Omar Rigoni
Omar Rigoni was born in Zürich on October 2, 1980. 

In his paintings everything is in motion, longing for boundlessness, dancing on a volcano. Like bubbling lava his paintings radiate heat and colorful energy and blazes real love of life. 

Simultaneously, the viewer senses the restlessness underneath the colorful, bubbling surface which keeps the viewer’s perception busy. The subjects of his paintings deal with anger, fear, frustration and the terrible impotence of people towards injustice, cruelty - of body and mind -, the power of climate change, terminal medical verdicts, and more. 

They may not always be enjoyable subjects, but they are experienced everyday by everybody. Therefore, Omar’s paintings are easily accessible to the viewer. People recognize their own fears, their own vulnerability. They connect.
