Axel

Brussels, Belgium

Attracted by the Hip-Hop culture, Axel begins to paint the spaces he meets on his way. After nearly 25 years of graffiti practice, since 2005 Axel has been using new media to make its messages more accessible. The urban material (panels, cones of building site, posters, markers, ...) is captured before being put back in place to attract the eyes towards objects often seen but little seen. Axel wants to challenge the passers-by, to push the questioning, to bring the Art in the places which forget it.

For him, painting is inseparable from a need for expression in a society that abandons culture in favor of material.
