Not Vital

Known as a versatile artist, Not Vital (born 1948 in Switzerland) uses his paintings to delve into the deepest layers of humanity, by wiping off all the excess on the surface. His meditative, colour-ascetic paintings depict the artist himself and those close to him, as well as familiar figures from the worlds of art and literature.
