Ulie Schwab is an abstract Swiss painter of German origin. After passing her senior high-school exams in a language school, she moved to the Lake Geneva region in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. Here she studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and later worked in this field.
From a young age, she dedicated herself to various creative arts such as painting, sculpture, ceramics, Ikebana, dance and music. Among other institutions, she studied at the Ecole ABC de Paris and also under the tuition of the artist Pierre Beck.
She opened her studio in Bursins in 2009. Since then, she has devoted herself entirely to painting, working as a freelance artist. Her style, her technique and blend of colors are very personal. The creation of reliefs, various color layers and the inclusion of minerals confer to her paintings a special light and reflection. Her favorite themes evolve around the energies of the universe, the energies of mankind and the energies of nature.
The practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as her passion for Asian culture have strongly influenced her artistic approach. Her paintings exhale at the same time a certain serenity and a positive energy which invite the viewer to slide into a state of well-being and to move at ease in his own free spaces.
Ulie has exhibited her works in Switzerland and abroad and her paintings can be found in collections in Italy, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the United States, China and, of course, in Switzerland, amongst others at the Swatch Group Foundation. One of her artworks is hanging in the office of a Federal Councillor at the Swiss Government in Bern.
Since the beginning of 2016, LDXArtodrome Gallery, Berlin/Hongkong/Malta has represented her at international art fairs in Europe, Asia and in the United States. However, the LDXArtodrome Gallery let her feel free to sell, exhibit or work with other persons or galleries, without any conditions. Actually, the renowned Gallery Art XXI situated in the old town of Geneva, is exhibiting several of Ulie’s abstract paintings.
