Benjamin Coosmans

Screenprinting, graphic art

Statement

Benjamin Coosmans develops his personal work by using screen printing as a creative tool in its own right.

His work is impregnated and influenced by the culture of graffiti, by the abstract expressionism of the New York school and by the work of the artist Jacques Villeglé. They can be found in his works through trails of brushes, traces of felt, textures of aerosol cans or

torn paper. Through silkscreen printing, he superimposes these different elements in order to compose his graphic universe. His work on forms and color is not limited to figurative or abstract, but is a search for a balance between these two pictorial worlds.
