Artists are a great inspiration for us. So we have thought about a new section on the blog about artists we love. Since we are offering a poster made by Camille Vanderveken in our contest 6001 is the new 1060, we have chosen to start with her.
Camille, 34, is a silk-screen printer. She also makes book covers/binding and organizes workshops for more than 10 years. This Biblioteca Wittockiama alumni, has worked with Anne Goy during her studies.
I get inspiration mainly from exhibitions and artists books, especially the ones made by illustrators. For my silk-screen printings, I notice a detail in an image and transform it into a graphic element by multiplying it. It creates a brand new pattern.**GOOD ADRESSES**
In Brussels, I do not hesitate and go to Delcorde et Wilberz for paper. It’s in Schaerbeek. Otherwise, the must is Modulor (see our post about Berlin and this famous shop), which is a very good reason to visit the German city.
**ON THE AGENDA**
I will attend the show and sale 6001 is the new 1060 this weekend. I was there for the first edition and I know Corinne (one of the organizers) since I did several workshops at the Atelier #11, in Brussels.
I will be at the l’atelier pop-up Sunday, 12 October at Tropisme. (Note: there are still a few seats left!)
I will be at the price of the beautiful Centre de la Gravure in La Louvière.
I will do various courses and workshops for kids, teens and adults during the year. (For more info, visit the website of La lune bavarde.)
