Naomi Gallay (1993) is a Swiss artist and designer born into a family
of five generations in the graphic arts. She received her BA
from the graphic design department at ECAL/University of Art
and Design of Lausanne in 2016.

 

During her 9-month stint in California, working as a designer, she developed a strong interest in the visual culture of branding and an artistic and critical eye on her art.

 

In 2015 she was awarded the Jean Knechtli Scholarship, which
honors an artist under 30 years old, and obtained articles in
the renowned Etapes magazine, the Parisian review of graphic design
and visual culture. 

In the 3 years since graduating, she has already exhibited her work
in Switzerland and United States, California.
She art directed several new brands, creative projects and collaborations while developing her practice through painting.

 

Her artworks already got several brands’ attention including
Louis Vuitton.
