Yves Berger

Yves Berger (1976, Saint-Jeoire, Haute-Savoie, France) grew up amongst the villagers and farmers around his home and the many artists who regularly visited his father, John Berger. This specific context is the ground in which his artwork has grown and developed over the last twenty years. His work springs from the same root and branches out into different visual mediums such as drawing, painting, monoprint, etching and sculpture. This sensitive and empiric observation of the world also appears in his many writings, essays and books of poems. His work has been shown in several countries throughout Europe and is held in numerous private collections. In 2001 he was awarded the Theodore Strawinsky Prize for painting.
