Yves HAYAT (Egypt - )


Yves Hayat was born in Egypt. There, most likely, were born his first aesthetic sensibility, his first needs for compliance, his first denials. In 1956, he discovered France and uprooting.
During five years, he attended the National School of Arts in Nice.

In 1973, Yves Hayat chooses advertising - a creative trade in full effervescence. He will later retain from this creative profession his fascination for images and the importance of their message. Those years enabled him to discover new technologies and to master his technics.

In 1990, Hayat returns to art and rediscovers the old masters. While working as an advertising designer he photographs people, the streets, museum paintings and recuperates magazine and web images which are carefully classified. Hayat is a perfect example of his time: an open mind on society, its streets, its media, its internet.
