Artist | Professional | Varied
Philip Bosmans was educated as a graphic designer. He is a self-taught painter and graffiti/street artist and you can see - looking at his pop surrealistic work - where his roots come from. Philip is a born draftsmen and all his dreams, wanderings and fantasy worlds first end up - in detail or more elaborated - in his sketchbook that is always close to give his creative ideas literally and figuratively a place to ´rest´. At a later stage they fuse with the paint and canvas to become art works that represent and characterize people´s dreams, grief, happiness or luck.
Philip not only creates a world he can escape in himself but also gives the spectator the possibility to disappear from daily life for a moment by looking at his works that carry a strong use of color and imagination in them.
Besides his work with paint on canvas Bosmans makes also digital art for which he recently received international recognition by winning the prestigious Macworld UK Digital Artist of the Year Award 2011 with the work "Origin of Species".
