Niklaus Rüegg brings Real life captions

Swiss-Belgian visual artist Niklaus Rüegg loves to mix visual arts with the real world. With his real-life captioned comic panels quiet landscapes or street corners suddenly transform in a dynamic episode in a comic story. Even though nothing may actually be happening.

The specific aesthetics of the panel borders, and the way the captions are added to them, seem to be lifted from traditional franco-belgian comics. It’s as if you can see a ginger quiff popping up around the corner at any time.

Rüegg likes to play with tropes and visual elements from comics, such as a quite iconic wooden fence or the omnipresent speech bubble.
