Inspired by punk and rock culture, Yann Sciberras’ work is cutting, offbeat and decidedly urban. Ecological, political, a form of social protest and a kick in the neck of the consumer society, his art is a stream of signs, images, words and warnings. Sciberras stands out not as a moralist but as a witness of contemporary society. He uses his practice as communication tools creating drawings with vivid colours and words as slogans and forms of urban poetry, often communicated through live performances.
In 2012, the French TV channel TF1 asked Yann Sciberras to sum up the news of the year on a canvas within a five-hour performance. The report, entitled ‘Retrospective en Peinture’, was broadcast on December 31st at 8.00pm on the TV News. The painting (2 x 2 meters) now hangs in the TF1 editorial office. Yann also featured as the guest of honour at HUGO BOSS, and also painted live during the VOGUE FASHION NIGHT OUT in 2012 .
