In his artwork Alain Poussot (born 1978 in Zurich, Switzerland) has a personal take on the various aspects of daily life. In small refined drawings, large colorful paintings on canvases, installations and three-dimensional works he handles incisive moments in his life depicted by either very silent or outrageous humour.

Society, stardom, sexuality, illness and death are returning topics in his artworks. Thereby without reservation he is making references to his own person, family and friends. Faced with philosophical questions he shows a great talent in enriching his art with words – leaving viewers desperate, hopeful or simply puzzled.

Sculptures, video, music and sound are other forms of expressions which Alain Poussot manages to blend. Elaborated technical installations allow viewers to interact with his artwork. In his video installation "The KISS", he playfully refers to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, wherein viewers play the crucial part. A gold plated over-life sized chihuahua, for which he received the Kunstschub award, demands from the viewer to find his own opinion concerning religious belief and nowadays science.

Alain Poussot lives and works in Horgen, Switzerland. In 2012, he has received the "Kunstschub Preis" and, 2006, the Ernest Manganel Award.
