PROFILE

Biography

MOIEN

Alain Welter, born and raised in Luxembourg, is a mural artist and illustrator. After his degree in Illustration Design at BTK in Berlin, he returned to Luxembourg to take root as an artist. Be it a wall, a barn, a bridge, facades, cooling towers or commercial spaces, Alain imparts this small country a touch of colour wherever he can.

 

Nonetheless, he illustrates certain magazines and had solo exhibitions in art galleries. The greatest achievements so far were Alain’s project ‘Make Koler Kooler’, where he transformed his home village ‘Koler’ (‘Kahler’) into an urban art museum; and painting five cooling towers on the premises of a steel manufacturer, which both brought him great visibility in Luxembourg and abroad.
