2017 Manuel Süess concentrated on the further development of his art and the technical quality of his work.
Manuel combined abstract and figurative elements as well as different artistic approaches and techniques in his artworks. He created the background of his paintings with strong colours and abstract shapes and crafted his figures with black grainy modelling paste on top of it. Besides his popular dance paintings Manuel Süess also painted and created abstract birds, dogs and horses. Although they are different work series he unified them by using the same techniques. Each series had their own colour palette and topics: dancers full of joy and passion in red and yellow, free, independent birds in blue and down-to-earth horses in green and brown.
2017 Manuel Süess created 27 paintings and one drawing. His artworks were shown in his art studio to interested visitors and clients. Besides the work in his art studio Manuel successfully completed three courses in property management and started his studies as BSc in business administration at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
