My favorites on Art Basel. Made it yesterday spontaneous with a friend to see the show#barthélemytoguo#best big painting. It is so difficult to keep a painting alive with this size. 4by 10 meters. But this one is so full of it. And it is a reflection on the genocide 1994 in Rwanda. Here some of the artist word about it: “Rather the concentrating on the horror of the massacres, I preferred to offer a physical of the hope and peace returning, represented by the energy of indestructible life capable of regeneration;and all this under the protective gaze of a great bird announcing the reconciliation of peoples”. Great rimless painting!!!!!#andywarhol#fantastic drawings. He’s still so fresh#hansopdebeeck#one of the strongest, very unique artist. Very poetic. Love his installation with movies, objects, sculptures, paintings, drawings as much like this sculpture of the girl in the bed as individual object. But I’m not sure it is not in the end a part of a bigger installation. Whenever you have the chance to see his work somewhere, go to see it!!!#artbasel
