Valentin VAN DER MEULEN
Born in 1979 in Lille, France.
Lives and works in Paris, France.
Valentin van der Meulen finds inspiration in all kinds of realisations that don’t belong to contemporary art, such as news photographs, press, documentaries, films, and architecture. His works unfold in series of drawings and paintings usually made from decontextualized press photographs. The result invites the viewer to become aware of our relationship to images. Valentin van der Meulen has been represented for several years by galleries in Zurich, Salzburg, Hamburg, and Paris. Featured in private collections in France and abroad such as the Francés Foundation, his work questions the limits of image and drawing through the notions of alteration, space, time, history, and identity construction.
