Throughout the year 2014, Japan and Switzerland will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. In the wake of the first treaty of Amity and Commerce signed in 1864, the countries have built a long and lasting friendship. Among the several exhibitions and events that will commemorate this anniversary in both countries, the present exhibition will offer an emphasis on “150 years of Swiss Design - Craftsmanship and functional beauty”.

I created a picture printed on textile cloth. Playing with the idea of „classicism landscape" wallcovering , combining  japanese and swiss sceneries, as well as Fauna and Flora and mixing it up with a touch of Painting and High Tech here and there.
