Robin Vermeersch

Robin Vermeersch (1977) lives and works in Waregem. He studied painting at the Higher Institute for Visual Arts, Sint-Lucas in Ghent. He works as a painting and ceramics teacher at Luca School Of Arts Ghent. He is also active as a designer of wallpaper, patterns and tiles for swimming pools and private homes.
Robin Vermeersch works from the whimsical observation of the wonderful structures of natural elements and materials that visually elude us through the naked eye. Robin is fascinated by the visual language that gets stuck between the folds of our routine and limited viewing capacity. He creates art that magnifies the unseen in sculptures and paintings with an abstract-organic skin. He therefore also appropriates existing organic structures that he transposes and processes within new images. The apparent strangeness of these images seems so familiar and natural to us.
