Vincent Messelier is born in Kortrijk. Belgium on 06/10/67. Started his first painting in May 2006. He is complete self-taught, passionate and full of love busy with it. He paints out of his heart and soul with some jazz or depending of the moment other kind of music. Since March 2011 he started as professional.
He is member of Dubai art centre International. He had already exhibitions in Dubai, New york, Brussels, Amsterdam Barcelona, Bari, Den Haag, Bruges, Paris, Rome, Palermo, Copenhagen, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Miami, is mentionend in several artbooks for museums and art collectors and also won several international art awards.
He has developed his own kind of style: "meridianism".
He works with pallet knives and you always can recognize vertical and horizontal stripes and lines that are corrections of the chaos he sometimes put on the canvas. Acryl is his medium and sometimes he combines with pieces of wood, foam or other materials.
He also started a second line for hospitality and business. A concept where he takes pictures of his own works where he combines pictures (that he took himself) of several themes, like horses, historical buildings, birds, cars, sports, eagles... These works are mostly projected on an original painting or at least details. Messelier is working also together with other artists and photographer because he is awared that art in the future and working together with the same passionated collegues is an incredible synergy and magnificent.He works also on customer demand.
He won several international awards and appeared in several artbooks worldwide that recognizes him in the artworld as contemporary master.
This is his statement:
‘Art is my second skin that i only discovered a few years ago. I just feel happy to create new things by painting, photographing, inventing new techniques, combining, blending by the new modern digital techniques always keeping in my mind the beauty of art, hoping the art lover appreciate and like it.
Art is not simply made for investing, but for admiring and loving,
people have to love it when they buy it, and keep loving it for the rest of their lives, then i'm happy. Every work i made is unique and comes right from my heart and soul, like i'm not academic but self-taught i do not follow these rules because i haven't learnt them, it makes it easier and i feel more free to give my mind and spirit full 'carte blanche' to create. In art there are no limits, no restrictions and this “freedom” is fantastic!’ Vincent Messelier
