Być (Lausanne, Switzerland 1982 -)

Represented by


Być is a Swiss based artist with a reimagined vision of Street and Contemporary Art; moving from the street to the greatest museums, challenging social codes, challenging the world, sometimes mocking, often denouncing, and even admiring.
He aims to provoke; to make people think, mix, connect: people, times, styles, perceptions. For Być, "to be" means to constantly seek, to say, to show, to share, as the painters he admires have done before him: whose works have described their worlds with tenderness, sometimes cruelty, and without complacency. Through hyper-consumption, he opposes recycling; and through intolerance, he imposes humour or emotion, by means of ugliness and wear and tear, the proposition of reincarnation.
