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, city where he currently lives and works.
Denis Meyers is particularly known for his frescoes and stickers in form of faces, which he calls his "perso", printed and cut out by hand and then spread in the urban space. The artist defines himself as a typographer, a vocation that he inherited from his grandfather, Lucien De Roeck (1915-2002) which created among others the ensemble 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 months project led him to paint nearly 25,000 m² of an abandoned building which was going to be destructed. 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.
