Size (inches): 24 x 36

Medium: Acrylic, resin, and glitter

Eddy Bogaert is a New York City-based artist with a lot of passion. As far as his influences go, Eddy's childhood has had a deep effect on his art. The frequent moves from country to country and the required adaption as a result to various cultures greatly affected his personality and its broadness, influencing both a desire to release any anxiety and to capture love in the expression of Eddy’s art.

The release of color everywhere in no defined stroke or direction sends a subliminal message. Eddy paints on the roof, in his garage, on the streets and always wear his art on jackets and on the crazy glue beautiful women in his paintings to arouse the viewer and provoke shock value. As if saying “I will use the strongest glue I know of to keep you where I put you. Where I need you to be,” Every artist needs a story. We all experience deficit and feel lost at moments in our lives. It’s inevitable. We must also see the beauty in it and where it has taken. Eddy will drown you in vibrant colors superimposed over a dark or a blank base. There is lawlessness, anarchy, and discord that could move you. Could it symbolize my feelings for my mother or my need for love?

His story reveals the beauty in what you do, what makes you feel, and what feeds your soul by being an open vessel for interpretation amongst spectators. His art is displayed in galleries around New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. For his solo show in art Basel Miami, he even got to paint a Lamborghini. Wilhelmina men’s fashion week used his art as a theme for their campaign. His art show for art Basel was one of the art shows to go see this year.
