Demian Bichsel (1983), born and raised in Basel, Switzerland, is a Swiss artist and filmmaker. At a young age, he took the chance of pursuing an apprenticeship at a film production company instead of finishing school, learning the skills of filmmaking, editing and production, and developing his unique observational vision.
Following his fascinations and the need to create, he managed his own skateboard brand, designed clothes and shoes and was involved in the making of countless short films and video projects.
In the past years, Bichsel has been travelling widely in Europe and documenting the urban environments of European metropolises through his photography.
He describes his way of working as continuous shooting of layered structures and reflections – a detailed observation of everyday banalities.
Bichsel develops his pieces as an ongoing conceptual series, adding new shots continuously.
