Wim DELVOYE

Birthplace Belgium
Year of birth 1965
Born in the Western Flanders region of Belgium, where Catholic faith runs deep, Delvoye produces highly decorative sculptures employing a wide range of symbols. While modeled on styles from art history such as Baroque and Gothic, they deal with motifs symbolizing consumer society such as brand logos and excrement, and provoke the viewer with a melding of beauty and ugliness, sex and life, and the traditional and contemporary.
