Vital grew up in a mountainous region of Switzerland and later studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His early works were marked by their interest in the body and sexuality, but over time, his works evolved to focus on themes related to identity, culture, and the environment.

His works were marked by their elegance, precision, and sense of playfulness, and they often engaged with the natural environment.

Vital's works have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Fondation Cartier in Paris, and the Venice Biennale. He has received numerous awards and honors for his contributions to the art world, including the prestigious Arnold Bode Prize in 2018.

Today, Vital is considered one of the most important and influential artists of his generation. His works continue to inspire new generations of artists, and his legacy remains a testament to the power of art to connect people across cultures and boundaries.
