Dan GERBO was born in Mulhouse ( France) .
After having devoted much of his career to interior design and modern figurative paintings, he now introduces a new kind of conceptual art, or better; demonstrative art.
Through his works which are unique and unusual, he shows life, strength and weakness and he makes us feel stirred and surprised.
This new creativity of contemporary art based on symbols releases strong and surprising energy.
My reason for living
Many artists find inspiration in misery, rage or desperation and express their turmoil through their works.
I am lucky not to have been in such dramatic situations, and I try, through my art, to show that everything can change from one moment to the next, that there is nothing more important in life than happiness and certainly not the material goods.
Money can obviously contribute to happiness, but many people run only after money and right past happiness, as if blinded by what they possess, or would like to possess.
These artificial pleasures, fed by greed, narcissism or vanity, are deform or destroy the notion of happiness.
Through my art, I strive to denounce this kind of behaviour with humour and cynicism.
Hedonism is my reason for living.
