Esther Ernst, born in 1977 in Bale and lives between Berlin and Solothurn. She studied at the Art Schools in Zurich, Bale, Hamburg and at the University of the Arts in Berlin.
Eenst is a visual artist with focus on architecture and urban planning, specifically the relationship between the city and the vitalizing stories of people. She does multi-layered drawings on paper as well as on walls; and her work involves large-scale cartographic drawings. Ernst is especially interested in the coexistence of ancient traditions and modern living standards, and of deep poverty and opulent richness.
