About

Arne Wastyn (1993) is a graphic artist based in Antwerp whose practice explores the concept of fantasy and world building in relation to reality. To escape everyday life Arne creates a new visual language constructed by visual associations and illustrations. 

As an artist he plays the role of narrator who documents relics from both worlds by designing and branding objects such as first aid kits or plushie toys and screenprinted digital drawings with references to both worlds touching on topics such as immortality and survival.

 

A world of fantasy, survival and human basic instincts comes in play. Arne translates his work in one of a kind screenprints, risoprints, artist books, (digital) drawings and limited objects
