Schellekens, visual artist, lives and works in Antwerp, °1974

Schellekens, vacuum painting

“Schellekens’ and Peleman’s art practice enters into a direct dialogue with our society. It goes often in direct confrontation with the public, provoking and inviting them to be part of the artistic expression that often only can exist by the presence of the viewer. They activate the public and emphasize on the ‘art for all’-idea, but never without losing the focus on the artistic inherent quality. Their works invite to reflect and question accepted realities in a way that their body of art is strongly connected with human nature and society.Their works and performances are at the same time iconic and embedded in social networks, they relate to all of us.”
