Boris Tellegen is a Dutch artist also known as Delta. Delta is the name he used when he became active in the street art scene. Alice Gallery is currently presenting his work and since I love art with a street background, I really wanted to see it. Before I tell you something more about the artist, let’s see some pictures.
This is part II of my review of the Vanhaerents Art Collection. I visited the exhibition ‘Man in the Mirror‘ during the Heritage Days in September 2015. There was so much I wanted to tell you that I couldn’t even fit it into one blogpost. Read part I here.
NO made by Mark Handforth. The artist is known for his playful and bold sculptures. Here we see a kind of traffic sign that looks like it fell on the ground. It seems damaged. Handforth wants you to experience the artwork from very close by so you can feel its physical presence.
What a discovery! I’m really happy to tell you about the Vanhaerents Art Collection. I visited the exhibition ‘Man in the Mirror‘ during the Heritage Days in September 2015. There is so much I would like to tell you about this expo that it’s not even possible to put in one blogpost. So here is part I.
Hello everyone! I saw a work of KATHRYN ANDREWS earlier this year at Art Brussels, only I didn’t know her name at the moment. When I checked out some artists exposing in Brussels this month, I googled her name and immediately recognized her work. Take a look at the picture you see above and then at this one here. The shiny mirror-like materials are the same, combined with very colorful elements that make you think about summer and holidays.
Albert Baronian, a Brussels gallery, is currently presenting an exhibition from the Chinese artist WANG DU, called ‘REALITE ALTEREE’. I saw an artwork of Wang Du earlier this year in Mons during a group expo called La Chine Ardente (see my review here). If you are planning to visit Mons, you should go take a look, it’s really worth it!
But back to the gallery in Brussels now. Wang Du’s work is a critical reflection on the influence of media on our daily life and the power it has to manipulate our minds. He makes sculptures of images he finds in newspapers and magazines. The images are often about really common events that doesn’t seem important. Because some of his sculptures are really big, these banal things become something special, almost like monuments. His work is often provocative. He got his interest in mass manipulation from his home country China, where he has been in prison for several months because of his critical art. Nowadays he lives in Paris en he also focusses on the relationship between human beings and objects.
