Quotes

„Der Illustrator und Künstler Balthasar Bosshard fertigt Bilder der fliessenden Welt – der Kuniyoshi einer munteren Gegenwart. Seine Arbeit trägt das Label Wonky: das wacklige, schiefe, aus dem Takt und in die bunte Bredouille geratene Schauspiel, eine visuelle Herzrhythmusstörung, ein Gepurzel stilisierter Gestalt, die da unbändig und unanständig tropft, spritzt, raucht und strahlt. Als visueller Vodoopriester ist Bosshard der Erfinder des zeitgenössischen Totempfahls zum Aufhängen und ein wunderlicher Sammler von Augäpfeln. Und nicht zuletzt ist er als glühender Verehrer des Siebdrucks ein getriebener Handwerker, dessen Ansprüche hochwertige Druckwerke von bizarrem Charme in die Welt setzen.“
Galerie im Rathausdurchgang / M. Lüscher

*If you need to imagine how alien’s wonderland looks like, he's definitely got the style for it.*
LTD-Edition | 2019

*Dark motifs colorfully illustrated: skulls, organs or monster-like creatures
are often part of his illustrations.* (...) His style is *sick and lovely*.
With these words a fan characterized the works of art".
