Marion Duschletta was born in 1972 in Graubünden, Switzerland. She has been a full-time professional artist since 2004. For ten years (2004-2014) she was the owner of Galerie Mauerblümchen in Zürich, Switzerland. Due to her increasing international success as an artist, she now focuses exclusively on creating unique artwork.
Marion Duschletta transforms luxury objects and urban areas around the world in her works. She layers an intriguing mixture of urban photographs and American pop icons opposite brand names and advertising references, adding bold colors and compelling patterns. She transfers them onto archival paper which is mounted on canvas. The pop icon imagery is often distressed in an attempt to emphasize a bygone era. She further enhances the artworks with acrylic paint and additional texture.
Her popular series of artworks include cities such as New York, Zurich, Las Vegas, London, and Los Angeles, American pop icons such as Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn, and the luxury brand Chanel. Duschletta’s artworks are exhibited and collected internationally and across the United States, notable collectors include Ariel Winter, Los Angeles, CA.
