about the artwork of
Nicolas VANDER BIEST
« There's art about art, art about life, art that's meant to be understood, and there's art that's meant for understanding life.
The work of Nicolas Vander Biest does it all... straightforward... raw.. sometimes imperfect in craft... but ALWAYS humorous.
With a background in publicity and copywrighting, Nicolas approaches every piece by conceptualizing the text first. Phrase ideas wander in his mind until a graphic solution strikes him.
Somewhere between a poet and a painter, he invites the spectator into his theories, personal opinion and (often dark) sense of humor.
Originally from Belgium, Nicolas is currently based in Mexico City.»
