︎ Information



Nathan’s multidisciplinary, print-based practice revolves around narratives, (mis)communication and remnants of human interaction. Projects tend to develop organically, through site-specific collections and  interactions. The resulting, accessible artworks tend to reflect the geo-sociological climate of his direct surroundings. They aim to elevate the mundane and offer a window into the subconscious and the less obvious. In an age where we are being bombarded by communication and unrealistic expectations, he aims to create a space to breathe, inviting the audience to critically question and regurgitate the massive media output we are constantly exposed to. 

He is currently working as a studio coordinator at the Frans Masereel Centrum, an international printmaking residency place in the Belgian countryside, and as a guide in the M HKA, Antwerp’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
