Philip Bosmans was educated as a graphic designer. He is a self-taught painter and graffiti/street artist. Looking at his pop surrealistic work, you can see where his roots come from.

Philip is a born draftsmen and all his dreams, wanderings and fantasy worlds first end up – in detail or more elaborated – in his sketchbook that is always close to give his creative ideas literally and figuratively a place to ´rest´. At a later stage they fuse with the paint and canvas to become art works that represent and characterize people´s dreams, grief, happiness or luck. Philip not only creates a world he can escape in himself but also gives the spectator the possibility to disappear from daily life for a moment by looking at his works that carry a strong use of color and imagination in them.
