Mathieu V. Staelensº1980 mathieuvstaelens.be
Mathieu V. Staelens was born in Ostend but lives and works in Antwerp. After passing through the art school, he ends up in the world of artists and leads a wild, fierce, rebellious and passionate artist's life. The heart of his work consists of hyper-fine brushed, realistic paintings, brought together in compelling, almost paranoid installations. The artist does not shy away from the Difficult Social Questions about The System in his canvases.
