BIO: Systaime, whose real name is Michael Borras, born 29 January 1973 is a French contemporary visual artist. His name of artist Systaime, chosen in the late 1990s when he was a figurative painter, is the contraction of the words "Système" and "Aime". They symbolize for the artist the love and understanding that is necessary for a data processing or political system in order to circumvent, divert or subvert it. Former art school student, he is a multidisciplinary French artist and exhibition curator, net.art activist and video jockey. He experimented with painting, GIFs, remixes, Mash Up, blogs, books, CDs, photos, audio/video performances, music videos, TV reviews. He is more particularly known as multimedia and networks artist. Systaime defines his style as "French Trash Touch", a name of his invention derived from the musical movement French Touch. Michaël Borras considers that the debates between the "great culture" and the "subculture" do not have to be, that there is no difference between a painter who will spend hours on a canvas and an artist who will spend hours also on the creation of a GIF.
