Daniele Buetti  (Swiss, 1956) 

Daniel Buetti (Swiss, b.1955) is a visual artist who was born in Fribourg, Switzerland. He mainly deals with installations and interventions, and has worked with photography, video, sound, drawing, sculpture, and digital media. Since 2004, he has been a professor at the Kunstakademie Münster, Germany. He lives in Zurich, Switzerland and Münster.

Buetti‘s works can be seen as different phases that build on one another. From 1989 to 1993, he dealt with universal symbols, such as arrows, crosses, and circles. He has developed his own logo, the wing cross, which he has printed on clothing and sold.

Buetti is known internationally mainly for his fashion ads of the 1990s. In his series Looking for love, he modified pictures of supermodels from journals and magazines. With branding, tattoos, and adhesions under the skin of the flawless models, he speaks to topics such as beauty, individuality, and image manipulation. In his work, injuries, Buetti managed to thwart the universal ideal of beauty.

In the 2000s, he created the series Dreams result in more dreams, backlit displays with neon lights and added letters.

Buetti communicates through his artwork, dealing issues in today''s consumer society.
