Stefan Saffer's art practice is a continuing attempt to make use of art in society. Visual repetition or aesthetic branding are not as important as poetic surprise, direct encounter or alienated illusion. The framework of real life is challenging the freedom of thought and work. Stefan Saffer worked and works in many different contexts spanning from working alone in a studio to large scale collaborations in public space. He works ephemeral as well as materialistic. His cutouts are deeply rooted in folk art, his public works follow ideas of the BAUHAUS movement or Joseph Beuys. He showed with galleries in London, Berlin or New York and worked also on the streets of London or Berlin.
