Arno 2bal is a Belgian artist and illustrator, and active member of the “Farm Prod” collective in Brussels.
Following an immersion in Kinshasa for several years, he returned to Brussels in 2013.
His work is influenced by a broad swathe of references and recycled images from his career.
For the past two years, the artist has returned to the sources of drawing and the graphic imprint, establishing himself as a working tool: the line.
Under the lines… objects, images, bodies disappear before reappearing filled with strength and spirituality. We cannot help but notice one of the characteristics of so-called primitive societies: the use of tribal motives.
During this journey into this pictorial universe tinged with black and white, or “balance and contrast” are the key words.
