Alliance Francaise d’Ahmedabad presents works of Swiss artist in residence, Antonio Wehrli, in presence of Consulate General of Switzerland in Mumbai, Mr Othmar Hardegger.

With the idea of using gravity in his paintings to promote love, peace, unity and colours, Antonio in his 5 weeks of residency has produced more than 40 artworks including the monumental artwork of 6m by 8m put up on the facade of Alliance Francaise. .

His idea, “Even though the world has generally become a more peaceful place thanks to globalization, world trade, travelling and knowing others better, there is still a lot of prejudice and many deem themselves superior to others, focus on differences, rather than similarities. More people than ever are starving because of unnecessary wars. We forget again and again that we are all much more equal than different.” He therefore uses gravity to show that we are all same.

Antonio Wehrli is based in China, Chengdu and is a full-time artist.
