Adrien Vermont

BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1981, lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.

Adrien Vermont’s work presents the crossroads of parietal caves, social sciences and early cartoons of the 30’s.

Through referencing ancient Egypt to nowadays vandal graffitis, Vermont redefines the basics of drawing, taking it to new fields of exploration.

Radical in figuration until abstraction, the minimalism of its forms favors a strong and thick line that clearly structures the surface of the canvas.

Losing the binary opposition between drawing and painting and overly restrictive dogmas in general, he prefers an approach where opposites are complementary and where the apparent simplicity of his forms give way to a complex reading of the history of art.

Recently, his main theme has been the ambivalent relationship that humankind builds to Nature, proposing an engaged - yet amusing - body of works staging speaking animals about their own condition.

Graduated from the Beaux Arts of Paris, his work has been shown in galleries, museums in a large part of Europe.
