Willem Boel

Since 2009, Willem Boel has been working on an interdisciplinary oeuvre, with a focus on installation. His in situ installations and two dimensional works mainly focus on the three dimensional. His industrial iron and skeletal steel structures act as a carrier for visual information; the open structures are witnesses of an industrial history. They carry the marks and bruises of intensive labour and repetitive actions.
Boel’s most important series include ‘The Reward Paintings’ ‘De Nieuwe Molens’, ‘Pare feu’ and ‘Sancho Don’t Care’
His works are primarily exhibited in Belgium but have been shown globally. In 2015, Willem Boel won the prestigious Grand Prix at the Salon de Montrouge after his work in Palais de Tokyo (Paris). 
Willem Boel has taken part in more than seventy solo and group shows around Europe, significantly his solo show at the Bruthausgallery in Belgium, and has been awarded prizes and grants for his work.

Willem Boel is represented by Bruthaus Gallery (Belgium) and Galeria Ilario Galguera (Mexico).
