“Through my work as a visual artist, I am deeply intrigued by the symbolism of urban furniture, construction sites, and architecture as a whole. I divert them from their original function to elevate them to the status of artwork.
Having a particular affinity for the raw and gentle aspects of concrete, I enjoy illustrating the sculptural embodiment these objects/materials can assume.
I take pleasure in analyzing, twisting, and reinventing these concepts until I drift towards what I would describe as 2D sculpture. In contrast to the industrial direction art can take, I advocate for the artistic aspect that the “industry” can embody. Art and beauty are everywhere, all the time—it’s simply a matter of perspective.
Being passionate about graffiti as well, the art I appreciate thrives in unexpected places, which is what gives it its inherent strength. This principle accompanies my belief that anything can find its place in art. Art infiltrates the streets, and vice versa.” Lio De Gucht
