He uses a wide variety of media, including photography, video, drawing, light boxes, and sculpture to explore and expose popular culture. Buetti's visually arresting works evoke the seductive nature of advertising and media in society, and scratch beneath that shiny surface to explore questions of identity, loneliness, and despair. He came on to the international scene in the early 2000s with 'Looking for Love', a series of installations that consisted of walls covered in images of fashion editorials and advertisements. Buetti manipulated these images by adding tattoos and slogans to the models—often of brand names and logos.

Selection of solo exhibitions: Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, Kunstmuseum Mühlheim an der Ruhr, Swiss Institute of Contemporary Art, Kunstraum Insbruck, FRAC, Fonds Régional d'Art Contemporain, Marseille, Museum Henie Onstad, Hovikodden , Oslo, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris.

His work has also been exhibited widely in group exhibitions, including at the Arizona State University Art Museum, Fotomuseum Winterthur, and Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, finally at Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Museum für Moderne Kunst, Weserburg, Bremen.

He lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland and teaches at Kunstakademie Münster - Hochschule für Bildende Künste
