Feelings aren’t final is the first solo exhibition of celebrated artist, Stefan Marx at PLUS-ONE in Belgium. An artist recognised for his typographic curved illustrational pieces, Stefan is prolific for his line drawings of minimalistic hilarity.
“Educated by skate culture in his early teens, and now the creator of a vast artistic universe,” Stefan is an artist who’s work elegantly jumps between DIY culture and the fine arts. Inspired by observational travelling, his drawings communicate “witty citations stemming from overheard conversations, local typography or song lyrics”, says the gallery. “His quirky renderings of people, animals, landscapes and even airplanes are composed of pure, simple line work, revealing a sense of immediacy behind their native aesthetic.”
The exhibition is compiled of Stefan’s drawings produced whilst in New York as the artist visited the city’s Art Book Fair. His depictions of “the metropolis and its colourful inhabitants, oscillate between wonder, kind irony and a hint of playful absurdity."
The exhibition runs from 17th November to 17th December 2016.
