NOA network

Managed artists 

NOA acts as a manager for selected artists. This means that NOA actively manages the career of the artist. We not only position and promote the artist's career, but also manage the entire career, namely we process enquiries from galleries, define a sales strategy together with the artist and implement it ourselves. Of course, the scope of a management contract varies from person to person. Information on or purchases of works are only accepted via personal enquiries: info@networkofarts.com.

(*1976, Bern)

Seline Burn
(*1995, Basel)

Seline Burn, born in 1995, is an artist living in Basel.
Her large-format paintings are fascinating not only because of the brushwork reminiscent of coloured pencil, but also because of the narrative representation of the motifs. Her Symbolist-influenced painting conjures suggestive images in which intimacy and radical strangeness are delicately balanced in a practice she sees as an ongoing personal diary. Seline Burn's paintings were presented in her first solo exhibition at Eve Leibe Gallery London 2022 in May. Burn's paintings have also been selected for a group exhibition to be held in London in autumn 2022 as part of a collaboration between Delphian Gallery and Unit 1 Gallery Workshop.

She also completed the foundation art course ("Vorkurs") at the Farbmühle Luzern and the professional design baccalaureate. She has been working as a freelance artist since 2016.

Cecily Walti
(*1994, Zurich)

Cecily Walti (*1994) is an artist living and working under the artist pseudonym GIGAX in Zurich, Switzerland. Cecily's drawings depict a range of fantastic animals, monsters and hybrid creatures. They are executed in charcoal, coloured chalk, on cardboard or in ink on paper. Cecily draws on his own emotional life to create unique worlds that express the surreal and familiar, the sweet and violent, and the chaotic and elegant. Cecily thus addresses the blurred relationship between the real and the unconscious. Cecily's works visualise a colourful universe of wild monster utopias influenced by post-feminism and art historical representations of creatures.

Patric Sandri
(*1979, Uster)

Patric Sandri is concerned with abstract painting. The elements of the painting play a central role: the paint, the canvas, the stretcher. He makes these given components the subject of his work. He experiments and tests new possibilities to see how far he can explore the medium of painting with these limited tools. Besides geometry, perception and seeing play an essential role in his work. Errors and contradictions in perceptions are central moments that influence his pictorial ideas and compositions.
