Demian Bichsel (1983), born and raised in Basel, Switzerland, is an artist and film-maker. At a young age, he took the chance of pursuing an apprenticeship at a film production company instead of finishing school, learning the skills of film-making, editing and production and developing his unique observational vision.
Following his fascinations and the need to create, he has managed his own skateboard brand, designed clothes and shoes and been involved in the making of countless short films and video projects.
In recent years, Bichsel has been travelling widely in Europe documenting the urban environments of European metropolises through his photography.
He describes his way of working as continuous shooting of layered structures and reflections – constructing and reconstructing detailed observations of everyday banalities.
Bichsel develops his pieces as ongoing conceptual series, adding new shots continuously.
