Alain Biltereyst


Biltereyst’s abstractions show the artist’s continued interest in the
visual language of our urban environment. Fascinated by the vivid
functionality of commercial signage — typography, logos, public
advertising, and commercial graphics — and the struggles of that signage
for our attention, his paintings are liberated from narrative
constraint to form a purely visual and material experience. Biltereyst’s
idiosyncratic, almost reverent approach, treats this source material as
a precious find. The world of graffiti and advertising exist in harmony
when eloquently moved from the public sphere to the intimacy of
the gallery.
