Yann Sciberras Artist
Coming from Punk Rock culture, Yann Sciberras is also a professionnal singer, song-writer, author and performer he has to his credit several albums and numerous concerts, notably with his latest music band GROOVYTHINGZ.
Today, he devotes himself to painting but without forgetting music. , he creates art that is eclectic and energetic, wacky and offbeat, and very urban. His work serves as a sort of social protest, a punch in the face of contemporary consumer culture. His art screams : signs, images, words, and warnings are rendered in vivid colors. And yet, Sciberras’ paintings do not moralize ; they simply bear witness to our shared society. With words flashing as slogans, his artwork opens out towards the world as a stunning comunication tool – a form of visual poetry.
In 2012, the TF1 channel asked Yann Sciberras to summarize the news of 2012 on a canvas as part of a five-hour performance. The report, entitled “Retrospective in painting”, was broadcast on December 31, 2012 on the 8pm TV news. The canvas (2×2 meters) is displayed in the TF1 newsroom.
Guest of honour at HUGO BOSS, the artist is performing live at the VOGUE FASHION NIGHT OUT 2012. The canvas is on display at HUGO BOSS’ Paris headquarters.
In September 2018 Yann Sciberras exhibited and performed a live performance at the SAATCHI Gallery in London during the START ART FAIR 2018 where he was also speaker at the ART WORLD FORUM conference “Emergence and Confluence”.

When Street Art invests the Table Arts
The Mauviel brand of kitchen utensils has given carte blanche to a dozen artists in order to create unique and original objects, all sold for a good cause. For the second edition of the M’Cook Art project, Mauviel, a high-end cooking utensils company created in 1830, offered a dozen artists the opportunity to work, transform, dress, cut, weld or paint the utensil of their choice. Their only limits being their imagination and the theme « The 7 deadly sins – the gluttony »
The painter Yann Sciberras also participated in this project. He approaches art as a snapshot of real life, current events, our way of life, our anxieties and fantasies. He thus printed his art on a plate using graffiti representing slogans, words, images responding to his perception of what surrounds him. These everyday objects transformed into works of art will be auctioned at a sale to be held at the Pavillon Ledoyen in Paris on September 11. The profits from the sale will be entirely donated to the « Toutes à l’école » association, which works in Cambodia to develop the schooling of underprivileged girls and adolescents.

Once stuck in traffic, it’s still nicer to skip the usual ads to take the time to admire works of art… A small artistic feat set up in the streets of Paris from April 27 to May 17, thanks to the initiative Bus Expo.
Contemporary art is trying to become a little more democratic and is getting ready to take the bus, or more precisely the bus. For three weeks, the Air France Cars – which commute between the centre of Paris and the airports – will make the 6m2 of visibility available at the back of each vehicle available to six promising artists (Jan Lisman, Yann Sciberras, Ann Grim, Arié Botbol, Robert Faure and Lahcen Khedim) identified by the « 44 Kleber collective ». The objective of this first mobile exhibition of contemporary art: to bring art down to the street and make it accessible to all.
