Anka Büchler is an illustrator and graphic designer living and working in Berlin. She is fascinated by the world of animals and fabels. Particularly impressed she is by the phenomenon of the Wolpertinger and their origin.

This shy mythical creature consist of body parts of different native animals. It flits through the Bavarian Forest by night and only very rarely someone gets a glimpse of him. The birth of these unusual creatures should be about 200 years ago and have started with the great “love” between a rabbit and a buck.

Based on this love story Anka Büchler creates first colored paper collages, then black and white drawings and later silk screen prints and riso prints.
