Ben Vautier (Naples, 1935) is most known for his Mail-Art; text-based paintings that fuse visual art with a form of literature. Having in mind the notion that art, in order to be successful, must be new and shocking to its viewer, Vautier's paintings, drawings, and sculptures seek surprise as their ultimate destination, taking a variety of routes to get there. Vautier is also known for coining Figuration Libre (Free Figuration), a French art movement of the 1980's. His work has been shown at Galerie Soardi, Nice (1997); Galerie Martin Krebs, Berne (1995); Galerie Daniel Templon, Paris (1994).
