MIGUEL DELIE (34) LIVES AND WORKS IN TORHOUT (BELGIUM). HE STUDIED AT THE ART ACADEMY IN BRUGES AND THEN WENT TO WORK AS A STYLIST TO DEVELOP AND FINANCE HIS ART. SINCE FIVE YEARS, HE CONCENTRATES ENTIRELY ON HIS ARTISTIC SKILLS.
“I ADORE TRIVIAL THINGS”, DELIE STATES. “BANALITY AND CONSUMPTION HAVE BECOME A SOCIAL NORM, WHICH I EMBRACE AS AN ARTIST. MY WORK IS BASED ON DREAMS AND IMPOSSIBLE EXPECTATIONS. IT IS FLEEING FEARS AND ARISES FROM IT. I CREATE ILLUSIONS. I WANT THE VIEWER TO THINK ABOUT THE ILLUSIONS. THEY ARE MEMORIES WITHOUT COMPLEXITY , WHICH ALSO NEED TO EXPRESS JOY. A CAREFREE PAST WHERE I WANT TO PULL THE VIEWER FROM HIS DAILY PATH. HUMOR AND COLOR PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE. I WANT THE VIEWER TO BE HAPPY ABOUT IT. I TARGET IN MY WORK ALWAYS FOR ORDER AND PERFECTION IN THE CHAOS OF COLOR AND MATERIAL. IT IS AN ABSTRACT MASS OF DUMPED STUFF , BUT WITH EVERY STEP YOU TAKE CLOSER TO THIS MASS, THE STORY COMES MORE TO LIFE.”
