Belgian artist, Vincent Messelier was born in Kortrijk in 1967. Completely self-taught he is a passionate artist and since 2011 he has had a professional career actively exhibiting around the work in cities including New York, Paris, Dubai, Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro, Venice, Firenze, Rome, Milan, Naples, Las Vegas and many others.
Messelier has developed a personal and unique style which he calls "meridianism." He works with palette knives and the viewer can always recognize vertical and horizontal stripes as well as lines that are corrections of the chaos he sometimes puts on the canvas. These are referring to the meridians of the globe. Acrylic is his medium.
Messelier's practice also includes photography; a unique blending of pictures by projecting on a first layer of paint. He works on commission in a variety of themes.
Vincent Messelier has won several awards worldwide (+90) and is mentioned in more than 40 museum books for collectors and as well as art magazines. Since 2018 he has been a gallery owner, www.art-home.gallery. Check on the artist's website for more information.
