Belgium artist Alain Biltereyst‘s works are influenced by 1960s minimalism, commercial design, and typography. His paintings are small, just one foot by one foot in diameter, but he groups these paintings on the wall to create composition relationships that transcend the boarders of the canvas.
Unlike 60s minimalism in which the forms were precise, Biltereyst includes evidence of process, purposeful mistakes and lets the wood grain show through. This style evokes a DIY graffiti aesthetic very much avoided by the minimalists. The spare style suggests both high art and ordinary commercial logos and signs, melding the two in the viewer’s eye and brain.
