Artist Statement

 

I live in Brussels. I make drawings and paintings. I work independently as well as collaboratively.

 

I try to explore the nature of drawing and painting in this contemporary and complex time. The theme I used for my work ‘Gathering momentum of the future’ is a collaborative artwork I do in public telephone booths in Brussels and other cities in Europe.

 

I gathered doodles and scrabbles from telephone booths, fragments of graffiti from streets, marks from markers and pen shops and some colors from bob the builders’ marks in order to make artworks with the dynamic interactive energy of cities.
