David Mesguich

Born in 1979 - Belgium


David Mesguich is an artist based in Brussels.

In an obsessional way David Mesguich travels cities and develops an atypical mapping by focusing his interest for all which, in those spaces of passage separates and divides.

For more than 15 years it's by the addicting exercise of graffiti that he investigated the subject. Today, it's by drawing and by monumental installations in-situ that he re-appropriates some parcels of those aseptic territories.
