Stijn Bastianen: At The Wunderwall Antwerp
Stijn Bastianen’s work is instantly recognisable: the rich colour palette and the high level of spontaneity and free expression carry us into another atmosphere, another world, as it were.
His work is uninhibited, playful and stimulates your imagination. Through improvisation and countless associations, Bastianen translates his unprompted thoughts onto canvas. This artist does not only focus on the result itself, but also on the process that a work goes through. The diverse narratives are hidden in different layers on the canvas. As a viewer, you hardly know where torest your eyes first: humorous, ironic and poetic elements alternate with cartoon-like observations of everyday life.
