As Paul Duval shares,“Rudolf Stüssi, like his Swiss compatriots, Paul Klee, Alberto Giacometti and Théophile Steinlen, is truly an artist of the world.

Now a resident of Canada, Stüssi has transferred his talent easily from his birthland to Germany, the Caribbean, Africa, England and Mexico, taking from each country themes for his personal creative needs.

It was not until 1975, at the age of twenty-eight, that Stüssi finally decided to become a full-time painter. He enrolled at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, where he studied drawing and painting for the next four years. Rudolf’s primary influence there came from Eric Freifeld, a brilliant draughtsman and watercolourist, who had a special influence upon the younger artist’s early themes and style.”
