Biography

German artist Metis Atash’s sculptures combine pop art aesthetics with conceptual art traditions, creating unique artworks that have deep spiritual meanings, but that also often reference the history of art and fashion.

After graduating in political science and economics, Atash successfully operated her own investor relations consultancy boutique in Munich, Germany. In 2006, however, she decided to dedicate herself full-time to her passion for art, design and fashion by creating one-of-a-kind sculptures, covered in Swarovski crystals.

Atash sculpts in fiberglass, and uses acrylic paint, automotive lacquer and Swarovski crystals to decorate her pieces. All of her works are subject to a multi-step process of clay modeling, molding, sanding and lacquering.

The topics of her works are based on the spiritual being, and her sculptures are inspired by the ancient teachings of Daoism. The word DAO translates to path or way of life. Daoist thought focuses on nature, the relationship between humanity and the cosmos, health and longevity, as well as action through inaction, which is believed to produce harmony with the universe. Atash’s pieces are meant to be perceived as the mirror of our eternal soul. They showcase life’s duality, and the merging of our inner beings with our physical selves.

Atash’s fierce entrepreneurial spirit and talent for business has led to the meteoric rise of her work’s visibility around the globe. Her works have been exhibited in selected galleries and showrooms in the United States and Europe.
