Stefanie Schairer



I am living and working mainly in Berlin, Germany. During the last years I did often collaborations with artists form South Korea and NYC, USA. Collaborations with other artists to the same theme but on different places. I am working mainly in painting, video, installation and interactive/immersive happenings/performances in public space.
My background is art therapy (MA) and social work.
In my abstract playful paintings I am using the color as an initial point. My observations and explorations about relationships and behaviour between several materials and the relationship between persons is my source for my creative work. I am working with different materials and paint and experimenting with several shapes, forms and textures in my work.
