Artist: Stephan Balleux
Stephan Balleux is a belgian artist based in Berlin, Germany. His work is dealing with position of painting in our digital age.The various techniques (drawing, painting, sculpture, video and special effects) constitute as many fields of investigation. From these experiences emerges an image, in constant change, erasing any temporality. Like a virus, the pictorial texture propagates itself and its digitalization becomes an eminently contemporary process.
