Michiel Ceulers, ‘KREFELD ZOO’, 2015, Nogueras Blanchard

About Michiel Ceulers

Michiel Ceulers’s process-oriented abstract paintings are known for bearing evidence of their mistreatment in the artist’s studio, where he routinely stacks paintings against one another before they are fully dry. Often tearing, taping, sanding, and puncturing his canvases, Ceulers’s works feature imperfect geometric shapes and patterns, a playful engagement with art historical styles. “For the Love Birds” (2010) series, Ceulers affixed two paintings side by side, mismatched in size and color, evoking the randomness of human encounters.

Belgian, b. 1986, Waregem, Belgium, based in Ghent, Belgium and Berlin, Germany
