Philip Bosmans is a graffiti artist/painter/illustrator currently based out of Belgium. He was classically trained as a graphic designer but he’s a self-taught painter and graffiti artist with a real penchant for the surrealistic qualities of fantasy worlds beyond our own.

His artworks 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.

Philip is as talented with digital art as he is on canvas or concrete, constructing seemingly endless numbers of logotypes, and has won numerous awards, most notably the uber-prestigious Macworld UK Digital Artist of the Year Award 2011 for his work entitled “Origins of the Species”.

He has exhibited in solo and group shows in Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium, Washington, Chicago.
