"Guerres, arrestations, terrorisme, policiers dans la rue, catastrophes naturelles, attentats, meurtres… Toute cette violence, morosité et pessismisme sont le fonds de commerce de la télévision. Turn Off The TV : mettons-lui les menottes ! Appelons le 911 pour les secours et pour nous-en débarrasser. Fermer enfin cette fenêtre en trompe-l’œil car c’est elle qui nous éteint peu à peu. Pourtant, tout n’est heureusement pas si sombre. Les couleurs sont là, appliquées sur la toile. L’humour et l’auto-dérision ne sont pas non plus en reste... J’ai donc tenté de mettre dans ce tableau figuratif, toute mon énergie et une petite part de folie."
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 communicating 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 the 31st on the TV News at 8.00 pm. The painting (2 x 2 meters) now hangs in the TF1 editorial office. Guest of honour at HUGO BOSS, the artist also painted live during the VOGUE FASHION NIGHT OUT in 2012 . Yann Sciberras exhibited and performed at SAATCHI Gallery in Septmber, 2018.
