Artist, painter and scene-painter, Christian Grünwald was born on
December 11th, 1957 in Fribourg. After artistic studies (Art school and History of Art
in University), he's been creating and exhibiting regularly since 1976.
In 1985, he realized the complete decoration of Montvallon's hotel in
Meribel-Mottaret (Savoie, France) which made him discover "Poya's" art
and Swiss papercuts. Integrating the different parts of this popular's
art in his painting, he interprets in a contemporary way this
alpine iconography, but always respecting the symbolical and
traditional elements of the "rising Alps" (Poya) initiated by the
countryman, artist, and cutter, Johann Jakob Hauswirth during the
The great size of these paintings and their original
setting to colour (papercuts were generally realized in black) give to
them warmth and a very particular light which combine perfectly with
the mountain's style.
He realized many painted decorations on wooden furnitures and in a few chalets in Megève.
Since 2004, he has regularly exposed his creations in this famous mountain resort in
Jean-luc Freundörfer's shop (Au Soli,Megève, Haute- Savoie,France), in the show-rooms of the decorator Astrid Maillet-Contoz (squaw valley, Megève), and also in Frédéric Delval's gallery ( Val d'Isère ) He's actually represented in Val d'isère ( France ), in Courchevel (France, Savoie), Paris and Genève by Daniel Besseiche's galleries.
