Willi Bucher (*1948 in Bühl near Günzburg) has been working as a painter and video artist since 1980. He is one of those artists who “are not willing to compromise” and he is one of those “rare contemporaries who answer questions of tomorrow and not those of yesterday” (Dieter Ronte). With his finger on the pulse of time, he captures and works on themes whose relevance points to the future. Color and canvas play just as important a role as digitally controlled technology, which he discovered for himself at the age of over 50 and uses to create an interplay of the analog and the digital, of flow and pixel. His paintings and drawings are both abstract and figurative, often large format and printed with a digitally controlled grid. As a painter and video artist he looks back on numerous exhibitions in Germany and abroad including New York, Washington or Shanghai.
The exhibition and residency project enables young artists to use the premises at Fürstenwall 74 for their own work and projects to bring this historic address back into the active life of the city.
