Yesterday I discovered the interesting Belgian artist Kris Martin.
The text below is my translation from the German original text.
On the international art market, he is considered a secret shooting star, he created the first living skull and in his art works he discusses immortality and transience: the Belgian artist Kris Martin. Subtly, he combines the modern with the archaic, the fleeting present and the speed of time. In 2007 he presented his work at the MoMa in New York.
Now, Kris Martin’s spectacular work is for the first time to be seen, in NRW, Germany: from the 2nd February 2012 at the Kunstmuseum Bonn and additionally from 10 February at the Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg.
