BELGIUM ARTIST SO CREATIVE, I TOOK A ROAD TRIP TO MEET HIM

photo (71) The creative, painted book sculptures of Pascal Courcelles quickly caught my eye at the “Paris Art Fair”. I wanted to know more about the sculptures and the artist.

I am always curious about the stories in people’s lives. Why did they choose their path?

This thirst for more sent me traveling from Paris to his studio outside Brussels.

Pascal’s passion for his work was quickly obvious as he talked about the inspiration for the book sculptures. His deep belief that “books” are such a foundation of life gave him the vision to include his life in his work.

The books are not just any books…but rather books from his parents and grandparents, books on art, books with knowledge, even a cookbook!  Books are no longer left alone on shelves but are now seen and enjoyed.

Making his life part of his art continued in other works. The colorful tower is made from a year’s worth of his used paint tubes!

Old postcards received from friends are painted and given new life.

Talk about Living Green!!

Pascal Courcelles, an artist sharing his life mixed with his love for color.
