If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
I am Dirk Wagemans, born in Leuven Belgium in 1979
I studied arts in Heverlee and then at the Urban Academy of Leuven
About my artwork
My work is mainly collages combined with raw colors and female forms. Patterns, attempts to structure my everyday perceptions, sometimes threatened by unleashed figures. Vanitas, status fear and ephemerality are recurrent motives in my work. I get my inspiration from personal experiences or popular events that touch our society.
Artists I like
Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Egon Schiele
I'm currently experimenting with different layers of materials like plexiglass, playing with texture, deepness and colors.
