A message came in from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina by artist Knut van Brijs. He shares his story and point of view through layers of collage.
Making collages, I get a chance to play with decontextualization by breaking common patterns.
My art makes a statement by creating different points of view on many social or personal issues in my environment.
Experimenting with materials takes me on many visual adventures inspired by spontaneous brainstorming and Dada art.
Each collage tells a different story, often as a social and artistic critique of the zeitgeist.
My art lives in the shadows.
I have no ambition to be mainstream. I am an underground rat eating the mainstream, choking and provoking the bourgeoisie.
– Knut van Brijs
