Belgian blood & 10 years based in Ghent Belgium, Stien Bekaert communicates as a visual artist throughout an assembly of mixed media.
Her work owes as much to photography, the practice of found imagery more specifically, than it does to printmaking techniques.
A collage technique, zooming into fragments, change them and bring them within a new context.
A fascinating concept of decomposing the image, the origin of the original images gets completely lost into new significations.
Also part of this visual world is studio kan/o, a design studio based in Belgium. > www.studiokano.com.
studio kan/o is founded and released in 2015 together with costume designer Valérie Hellebaut. Driven by a search for authentic and original printing techniques and encouraged by a combined experience the studio produces only small editions of objects made with great attention.
