Rinus Van de Velde. Now I am the night of nights

June 30, 2018 - September 09, 2018

Large-format charcoal drawings are often the medium of choice for Rinus Van de Velde (*1983 in Leuven, Belgium). Very often he appears as the protagonist in his works: be it as an artistic alter ego or after the role model of existing persons; Van de Velde moulds characters who travel, explore, and search – for their own self, a new inspiration, but sometimes just for the next gas station and a pack of cigarettes.

Van de Velde already attained international success and is long since a star of the Belgian art scene. He refers to his artistic work as a whole, long story. For Erlangen and his solo show in the Kunstpalais he wrote its next chapter – with new works and a new main character.
