Who is BGW?

A

French artist living in Switzerland, Who is BGW? began his life with little interest in art; for him museums were boring and painting was useless. It was not until a sporting injury left him with a physical disability that he turned to new forms of selfexpression, realigning his energy and ambition towards developing his art practice; the sudden change bringing new time to reflect, learn and discover. Painting mainly with acrylic and knife, BGW’s process sees him first focusing on the colours

that represent his idea, painting onto canvas or Plexiglas. Applied with strong, impasto strokes, the bold pigments depict a neon world of high saturation; the image built in his mind is more expressive than figurative although each subject is recognisable in its form. It is the need to convey a feeling or emotion that drives him to start working on a piece. Recently BGW’s paintings have been exhibited at Art Basel Miami. whoisbgw.com info@whoisbgw.com
