Biography

Daniel Cherbuin was born in 1971 in Zofingen, Switzerland. He lives and works between Zurich, Switzerland, and Miami, USA.

For umpteen years Daniel Cherbuin has been staging the intersection of alternative art spaces and underground parties with his video installations, that brought him to Art Galleries and Exhibitions. His oeuvres impress with highly innovative montages, idiosyncratic alliances of images, as well as an anarchic tenor: with irony, and pastiche Cherbuin is mocking the blasé in commerce and culture and smoothes the sublimes and ponderous of the art system away. Cherbuin has been converting music into clips and visuals in ingenious ways for numerous bands, namely Yello and Division Kent. Various collaborations with Thomas Haemmerli, for art and experimental films and even one cine-film. Originally Cherbuin learned audio-video electronics ab initio. At the beginnings of commercial television he was the creative force of Sputnik-TV, an innovative and experimental channel emerging from Zurich's underground techno scene.
