Author, painter and composer, impassioned of sciences, his creations and research works are directed on the future of the human species. He is one of the creators of the post-humanist artistic movement born in Silicon Valley. Through the conceptual power of his multidimensional works, he has revived the Total Art movement born in the 19th century while giving it a multidimensional scope that has made him a precursor of digital and immersive art.
Thierry Mutin created and co-wrote, with Elizabeth Hirschmann, the Saga PREDICTS, an epic of science fiction putting in scene the probable future of the Humanity in a context of war between Humans and Augmented Humans (Transhuman Mutants)
This unique Total Art project on the future of humanity and transhumanism, required years of research, writing, painting and composition. This Saga was conceived as a complete universe (Lore) intended for multimedia, publishing, gaming and streaming as a series.
TRANS AND POST-HUMAN ART
Since his first exhibitions in France (1980), Thierry Mutin is part of the current of the fantastic art (Hieronymus Bosch, Alfred Durer, Gustave Doré, Escher, etc.) and of the science fiction (Asimov, Herbert, Chris Foss, Moebius, Hans Rudy Geiger...
Since the early 90's, he has been involved in computer science, in particular information processing, data and meta-data, with creations inspired by the sciences and new technologies developed in Silicon Valley. He participates in think tanks (Millemium, Humanity +, Transhumanist Association) and his research is mainly based on the links between Science, Arts and Anthropology and more particularly on the stakes of the mutations imposed by the digitization of the world, the computerization of the beings, and the infosphere-newly named by Marc Zuckerberg Metaverse-.
His work is characterized by the use of mixed techniques: drawings, paintings, 2D/3D sensory landscapes, sound "sculptures", interactive scenographies, holograms...
In order to meet the expectations of institutions, companies and private collectors in the field of Total Art, Thierry Mutin has created the "Futures Art Lab" (Mind maps, digital murals, immersive installations and digital sculptures...), and the "Walls Art Lux collection": a collection of panoramic paintings and digital frescoes inspired by the microcosm and the macrocosm
Galleries representing him are in Atlanta, Georgia and Paris.
In the field of musical creation, Thierry Mutin, composer and author, began his career in 1984, using his different voice registers: countertenor and baritone.
His original work makes him one of the precursors of epic music by his inspiration linked to the fantasy and science-fiction universes which has always been his and by the symphonic scope of the arrangements.
He has composed, interpreted and recorded 9 albums and numerous singles (in the Universal, Warner, Sony and Arcade catalogs).
2022 and beyond...
Thierry Mutin has just completed the creation and composition of two albums of epic music intended to enrich the universe of the saga PREDICTS:
Human & Beyond and Songs of the Tribes.
He has also just recorded in Paris a personal album in French 'HUMAN VOX', which will be released at the end of 2022.
He is preparing an immersive exhibition Human & Beyond which will make his audience experience the different dimensions in which the human species evolves, from the infinitely small to the infinitely large.
For Thierry Mutin, the creation must amaze, provoke emotion and reflection and especially engage, make participate readers, listeners, spectators, players in the invention of the Future.
