Meryn Verhelst

Visual artist

a Belgian visual artist, whose work is deceivingly simple, at once playful and nai╠łvely melancholic, sometimes scatological but very much layered in sophistication. His overwhelming, obtrusive canvases can both be oddly humorous as emotionally charged. Falling somewhere between representation, cartoonish street art and x-rayed abstraction, his colourful and satirical pop-canvases tell different stories with just a few flattened brush strokes.
