1. Daniel Buren is famous for his iconic stripes, mostly works made from striped canvas, and he is often recognized for his permanent installation at the Grand Palais in Paris.

2. His practice is very much influenced by the idea of in situ, the theme of his 2005 retrospective at the Guggenheim, New York. Buren says: “It is by working for a given exhibition site that the work in situ—and it alone—opens up the field for a possible transformation of the very place itself.”

3. He won the 2007 Praemium Imperiale Award for paintings and recently designed the set for the Spring 2013 Louis Vuitton fashion show, incorporating stripes of course.
