Andreas Gefe

Opening Reception / Vernissage: Wednesday 27. August 2014 18:00

The Trace Gallery is delighted to open the autumn season with ‘Love Machine’, a solo exhibition from Andreas Gefe, known as Gefe, in which he presents his work as a painter. The humour in the title is deliberate, as is an element of surprise – in this extensive show the artist and illustrator reveals unfamiliar facets of his practice.
Gefe studied illustration at the University of Art and Design (HSLU) in Lucerne, and has since pursued a successful career as a cartoonist and illustrator. His work has been commissioned by publications including Du, das Magazin, NZZ am Sonntag, Playboy Magazine Germany, Die Sonntagszeitung, New York Times Book Review and Rolling Stone Magazine and he was recently included in the Taschen publication ‘100 Illustrators’ edited by Steven Heller and Julius Wiedemann. From the start of his career he has also been active in the comic sphere; the Swiss Edition Moderne press has published several books created by Gefe in collaboration with authors including José-Luis Bocquet and Charles Lewinsky.
