Nikki Küntzle is a young multidisciplinary artist with a strong interest in large format creations, public artwork and murals. She uses a number of media, including screen printing, painting, aerosol and collage. Nikki draws her inspiration from minimalism, illustration, graphic design and street art. By using bright and contrasting colours, and a minimalist esthetic, she creates a pop art effect. She seeks to create a connection with the spectator by creating a dialogue between her own experiences and the human experience in order to reflect a collective feeling.
This project is part of a long-term partnership with the VSMPE borough, which sees mural art as an important tool for revitalization and beautification. Since 2007, MU has created seven murals with the theme of cultural encounters, in reference to the multi-ethnic character of the borough.
In 2018, Nikki Küntzle, a new artist, took up the challenge by creating a mural with luminous colours inspired by the mix-and-match paper game.
