Michaël Borremans

° 1963

Born in Geraardsbergen (BE), lives in Ghent (BE).

Michaël Borremans (b. 1963) starts his artistic career as a photographer and only gradually discovers his unmistakable drawing talent. The breakthrough follows when he expands his approach with the possibility of painting. Since then, he has mainly portrayed human figures that are visibly trapped in a thought, a dream or a trauma. The images are enchantingly beautiful, yet simultaneously alienating and frightening.
