Clément, AKA Itsthevibe, had his first contact with art when he was 16, astonished by the power there was in a 400 ml spraypaint can, he felt it could change the world but Art was not an available option. Keen on understanding life, he studied biology and then worked in the science domain. However he kept doing some creative actions on the side, not knowing why, just because it felt good, because he felt he had to do it – it’s the vibe –
Living in France, Scotland, California, Canada and Germany the inspiration kept flowing and he wrote over 70 notebooks full of thoughts and ideas. When finishing his scientific mission at the French embassy in Berlin, he decided it was time to answer the creative call, full time. Eventually, he joined the University of Arts (Universität der Künste) in Berlin. This broadened his horizons, hence his conceptual interests and mediums expanded. Ex-member of the Ai Wei Wei class, he is now enrolled in the Neugebauer class and went on a short exchange to the Surikov Institute Moscow in 2019.
He still believes Art can change the world.
