Personal life

Robert Indermaur was born on 9 June 1947 in Chur, Switzerland, the second of three children.[3] He is a member of the In der Maur family. He attended the Bündner Lehrerseminar school in Chur[4][5] and in 1967 graduated from a teaching seminar course. Upon graduation, he traveled around Europe, Asia, and Africa. For the next year he worked as a primary school teacher in St. Antönien.[6] In 1974 he met a woman named Barbara whom he married in 1975 and had three children; Rebecca, Alexander, and Adrian.[7][8] Together they founded a "small theater" in Chur, called the Klibühni Schnidrzunft.[9] They ran it for ten years and lived in an apartment above it.[10] In 1983 he moved to Almens.[11] As of 2009, Indermaur was a practicing Scientologist and a financial contributor to the Church of Scientology.[12]

Artistic career

Indermaur became a freelance artist in 1969.[6] His paintings began to garner significant attention in the mid-1970s.[13]

Indermaur tends to paint in series, creating as many as 50–75 works all related to a single theme. From 1982 to 1983 he painted sofas and from 1986 to 1987 he painted a "between rooms" series, which displayed subjects in doorways and hallways.[14]

In 1977, Indermaur and graphic artist Albert Brun published the satirical magazine Das Ballhorn in six editions.[15]

In 2011, Indermaur was among a list of artists who signed the Declaration of Swiss Artists Responding to the Palestinian Appeal for Solidarity.[16]
