Fabian Chiquet

Key aspects in the works of young, multi-award winning Swiss artist Fabian Chiquet (b. 1985) are his staging strategies in pop and youth culture.

His complex multimedia installations that video, performance and music play an important role in are through-composed like pop concerts, replete with quotes and range from the graphic style of contemporary lifestyle magazines to modern altarpieces to YouTube dance videos.
