Graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Nantes, Yoan Sorin started as a professional sportsman before taking courses at the Fine Arts School of Nantes, Concordia University in Montreal and finally at the University of Castilla la Mancha in Cuenca. He was briefly a teacher in Haiti, a cultural guide in Greece and founded an artists' residence in Douarnenez.
He uses various mediums in his work, exploring the limits of creative processes between success and failure.
The performance becomes an essential element in his production in order to physically experience the nature of the objects created. Impregnated by the "low culture" production, his drawings, paintings, videos and performances disturb the distinctions between popular culture and art in a setting set of errors, deletions, repetitions, drawings or lines without ends. By using the simple visual signs Yoan Sorin addresses complex themes that tie his approach to a critical work on social, political and cultural issues.Read more
