BIOGRAPHY

Philip Bosmans is a graffiti artist currently based out of Belgium. He was classically trained as a graphic designer but is a self-taught painter and graffiti artist with a penchant for surrealism and fantasy.

His artworks represent and characterise peoples’ dreams, grief, happiness, and luck. Bosman not only creates a world he can escape in himself but also provides the spectator the possibility to disappear from reality briefly by looking at his work, through his confident use of colour and lucid imagination. Fanciful and weightless his subjects are part-real, part-utter invention. Enigmatic yet enchanting, Bosman’s work promises a tantalising visual escapade. Bosman is as adept with digital art, just as he is with painting on canvas or concrete. This versatility is seamlessly translated to his subjects, which are amalgamations of ideas and experiences, resulting in characters that the artist captures in a range of positions and mid-movements.

The artist has established a successful career in Europe and the U.S. The artist has won numerous awards, most notably the uber-prestigious Macworld UK Digital Artist of the Year Award 2011 for his work entitled “Origins of the Species”. He has exhibited in solo and group shows in Paris, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium, Washington, Chicago.
