Albert Willem is a contemporary figurative artist who lives and works in Brussels. He is best known for his naïve-styled paintings, with a folksy and infantile element to their composition. His subjects are generally light-hearted, deliberately avoiding profound themes, with twists of the humour that is integral to Willem’s practice. His works, usually painted in acrylics on canvas, often show ironic or larger-than-life moments in everyday life. Drawing down on Lowry’s artistic sense of normalcy and primitivism, Willem brings a contemporary spin on this style by depicting everyday life in 21st century society. Willem lives and works in Alsemberg, Belgium, and in recent years has exhibited in Lenningen in Germany, in Moscow and in Antwerp.
