About the artist
Working on thick panels, Alain Biltereyst’s work focuses on layering and repetition with an affinity for certain motifs of color and shape.
Inspired by the beauty of practical designs, the artist tweaks the colors in logos and designs so that the resulting diminutive works operate in the space between a precious object and fragment of the design. The carefully chosen scale and brushy, over-painted surfaces draw the viewer into a beautifully crafted homage to the world of advertising and design. Through tile-like panels and larger works, Biltereyst celebrates the parallels between historical abstraction and the commonplace.
Born in 1965 in Belgium, Alain Biltereyst currently lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.
