Doctor Brunet is a French/Brazilian artist who travelled his way to adulthood nomadically via Paris, New York, Beijing, Rio de Janeiro and a few places in between. His influences come from a luxury background and the street art he found along his travels. His brief moments at L’Ecole nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts along with the great dada and surrealist movements helped him find a voice. His works derives from a universe he created, in which he explores our most basic and animalistic thoughts and behaviors; simply laughing at the need for differentiation, constantly looking to adapt and reshape one’s identity via the characters of his universe. Doctor Brunet embraces what drive us the most, our need to fulfill ourselves, whilst focusing on keeping a positive outlook at all times.
The Doctor is inspired by who and what he believes to be odd - extravagant (He likes Salvador Dali.) His moniker — Daswhatsup — came from an idea, a thrill being fulfilled. www.dasdoctorsstudio.com
