Michel Majerus

Michel Majerus, one of the defining artistic voices of his generation, sampled from art history and popular culture.

Drawing inspiration from youth culture, popular music, videogames or mainstream commercials, Majerus developed an artistic practice which expanded from his canvas into the spaces he exhibited in. He absorbed and processed the imagery he was surrounded by and, by combining traditional painting with digital production techniques, created a highly unique visual language.

Michel Majerus (1967–2002) collaborated with BORCH Gallery & Editions in 2001.
