Leopold Rabus


The fantastical worlds of Swiss artist Leopold Rabus are loaded with cliches and symbols, as his satirical characters engage in a variety of dualities. Rabus’ characters investigate morals, ethics, religion and sexuality through absurd and ambiguous narratives. The surrealistic imagery is rooted in Christian iconography and art history and is explored through a variety of media, including wax, real hair and miscellaneous particles. Rabus attended Cite des Arts de Paris (2000) and has exhibited with Galerie Une in Neuchatel, Switzerland, and Galerie Adler in Frankfurt, Germany. In 2005, the artist was featured in the Scope Miami art fair, and, last year, Rabus exhibited in the Collections de Saint-Cyprien in Saint-Cyprien, France.
