Visible Emotions (2023)

BYBAD is a street artist working under an anonymous pseudonym. Emotion visible is a series of ten works dedicated to making the emotions of anonymous people visible. BYBAD’s practice is rooted in abstract expressionism, and starts from the realisation that all people – friends, lovers, enemies – start out as strangers. They explain, "On the street, in a supermarket or at a petrol station, we are all anonymous before our eyes meet or sudden contact occurs. The next second, that anonymity disappears as if it had never existed.” BYBAD aims to visualise and evoke the emotions created and shared in these pivotal moments.
