Olivier Mosset

Born in 1944 in Bern (Switzerland). Lives and works in Tucson (Arizona).

Olivier Mosset is a Swiss painter that is well known for his minimalist paintings and sculptures. Founding in 1966, the group BMPT alongside Daniel Buren, Michel Parmentier and Niele Toroni. The collective believed that art should be extremely minimalistic. As such, Olivier Mosset’s paintings are characteristics to a single repetitive act such as 9 centimeters diameter black circles or the letter A. As his practice has developed, the Swiss artist began monochrome paintings through geometric abstraction in the late 1970’s. His sculptures are also minimalist-rooted: “Toblerone”, as an example, refers to the Swiss anti-tank barrages and is a thoughtful play with the candy brand, has been seen in many art institutions and cultural manifestations. Worldwide known and often associated with the movement of Radical Painting, Olivier Mosset’s primary concern is the autonomy of art.
