Duggal at Global Shop 2016 – Meet Our Artist – Fabian Oefner

Fabian Oefner doesn’t accept the contention that art and science are poles apart. On the contrary, he thinks that in human experience, both ways of seeing understanding the world inform each other and can be combined to help us more fully understand our world.

Fabian Oefner

The science part of his practice is investigating and experimenting with normally invisible universal forces and properties of time. The art is manifested in the expression of his findings: stunning photography, clever kinetic installations, and compelling films. His viewers get to perceive energy and motion in completely new ways.




Born in 1984, in Switzerland, Oefner grew up there and still lives and works in his home country. He initially studied painting, photography, typography and art history at the Basel University of Art, and then took his Bachelor of Arts in Product Design at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Northwestern Switzerland. His training in successful design has taught him how to manipulate multilayered, complex processes that require combining aesthetics, legibility, emotional effect, as well as the language of form, into a single image or installation. In 2013, he built on his success, founding Studio Oefner.
