YVES HAYAT’s works, modern, contemporary, are the product of a deeply classical culture. Thanks to all the techniques which belong to our time: photography, new mediums, superimposition of images, etc.... he creates an original work rooted in the human cultural heritage but which, through the strength of its subjects, conveys every dimension of our era.
Through a strictly artistic approach, YVES HAYAT expresses a philosophical thought, not in complicated words but by speaking to our senses, in a clear, untortured way. He presents the essence of our human condition and of our time, bringing out its distinctive characteristics and its violence
The originality of YVES HAYAT’s works lies in the amalgam of artistic perception with the images from a communication and information based society. The titles he gives to his works, utterly high jacked advertising slogans, have the effect of giving a meaning to the pollution of our everyday lives. They reveal our identity and display our own brand. It is not a celebration of barbarity, but rather the fascination created by human ambivalence.
