Born in 1979, Denis Meyers is a Belgian urban artist. He studied at the National Superior School of Arts and Visuals of la Cambre, in Brussels, where he currently lives and works.
Denis Meyers is most well known for his frescoes and repeated motifs in the form of partially illegible text and faces, which he calls his "perso”. Each work is printed and hand cut out before it is spread out into the urban space. Meyers defines himself as a typographer, a vocation that he inherited from his grandfather, Lucien De Roeck (1915-2002) who helped create the design of the World Expo poster of 1958. It is with him that he started to write and draw every day.
One of his milestone projects is “Remember Souvenir”, in the former headquarters of pharmaceuticals company Solvay in Bruxelles. Initially planned for a few weeks, the 18 month project led him to paint nearly 25,000 square meters of an abandoned building which was going to be destroyed. A pharaonic project in which the artist invested space (doors, roof, facade, windows) and posted his memories, in the form of writings and portraits. About 150 drawing notebooks, accumulated over the past twenty years, served him as the starting point of this project.
