Daniel Buren

° 1938

Born in Boulogne-Billancourt (), lives in Paris ().

Daniel Buren is a system analytical essentialist. Characteristic for Buren's work is his constant use of vertical stripes. These stripes are invariably executed in white and one other colour and always have the same width of 8.7 centimeter; this is the same pattern seen on the cloths for many awnings. Since 1965, Buren has been using this pattern systematically for the creation of his works. With this poetical element as a means, he attempts to come to deeper understanding about how the world, and especially the art-world, works.
