From 1967 he studied art at the Ecole nationale des arts décoratifs of Nice[1] . In 1973, Hayat chose to go into advertising and marketing, which led him to open his own agency.

Artist's statment

Hayat's art focuses on the current state of the world, of this ultra-media universe, of its domination by the image, the icons of appearance, luxury, war ... Yves Hayat stages his works. Using superimpositions, shifts, misappropriations and transparencies, he confronts beauty and horror, indifference and fanaticism, luxury and violence, thus facing the viewer with human ambivalence and the contradictions of this world.
