san schaller - artist & writer
San Schaller was born in Zurich. After completing her apprenticeship as an architectural draftsperson, she completed the study program Visual Communication at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in the specialization theory in media, design, photography, art and culture.
As a collage artist, Schaller is inspired by art itself. This includes interior design, photography, design, painting, illustration as well as dance and all kinds of visual arts. She uses color concepts from all over the world (Japan, Le Corbusier, etc.) to influence her works. As a writer, she strives for storytelling with every new collage.
For her works she uses all kinds of printing materials such as magazines, books or posters. Her way of working is analog, only cutter, scissors and glue are used. Then she scans the works. San prefers to work with preset image sizes and dispenses with any image processing programs. She is a self-taught collage artist and is always trying to developing her style.
