Graphic Artist and printmaker
Arne Wastyn (1993) is a graphic artist who lives and works in Antwerp. He reproduce found images and illustrations, place them in new contexts to create an alternative reality and reveal the complex mechanisms of reproduction.
Images are made to capture the world or a moment in time. We name what is in the picture to set boundaries and make rules, to better understand this world. When creating new material, he searches for an invasive experience that is trigged by these pictures. He always tries to overstep these boundaries by combining, editing, or reproducing these photographs and illustrations to reveal a deeper layer of representation.
Arnes work reveals the complex mechanism of representation and the brain in relation with our basic instincts. Shifting reality towards a more intens reality.
He translates his work in numerous prints, drawings and artist books.
