"I am not an artist, I deliver icons."
Coming from a family of artists, with a father who is a sculptor, (Robert Müller), a mother who is a painter and a jeweller and a half-brother who is also a painter, Manuel Müller is a Franco-Swiss painter and engraver.
A loner (Einzelgänger), a solitary wanderer
Manuel Müller trained as a sculptor in marble in Carrara before settling in Lausanne. Now working with wood, neither his sculptures nor his engravings can be classified under a single category. His adventurous work is closest to the German concept of Einzelgänger (a maverick, non-conformist). The artist is a solitary wanderer who practices his art at the crossroads of different epochs and civilisations that are far distant from one another.
