Hey there! I’m Katja, the current intern for Economic Affairs and Communication at the Consulate General of Switzerland. During my time here, I have had the privilege of meeting so many different talented artists. The one that stuck with me the most is Swiss artist Ivana Falconi. Born in Locarno and now living in New Jersey, she has exhibited her art in Switzerland and internationally. I love how her paintings combine motives of animals and nature with bold neon colors to create a mystical and fun world that blurs the lines between reality and imagination. Don't miss your chance to see her unique exhibition Welcome to Mars in the lobby of the Consulate General which can be visited by appointment through February 10 - a perfect activity for these cold and dark winter days!
