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.
In 2019, the Fédération autonome de l’enseignement (FAE) celebrated its 10th “Semaine pour l’école publique” (Public School Week). They collaborated with the Mural Festival and multidisciplinary artist Nikki Küntzle to have this wall painted. Nikki sees free education and public schools as the first steps to bridge gaps between diverse student bodies, and the opportunity to learn from and with one another. The flowers blooming in the minds of each of the different characters painted in this enlightening work represent different school subjects and thoughts blossoming.
