Fred Penelle

Born in 1973 - Belgium


In his 10-year career, Frédéric Penelle gave printmaking an energy boost with his innovative practice. He created a body of work that is original, witty, fun and serious at the same time.

In the lineage of surrealism and black humor, his work is like a UFO in the contemporary art world. There are creatures of all shapes, reunited in bizarre zoomorphic bestiaries, strange machines and mass consumption; all these elements meet in a critique of today?s hazardous progress that creates hybrids and mutants about to get out of control.

Beneath this sensation of a huge mess , we can feel a science of remedies that fascinates us, a science of organs that frightens us, and Frédéric Penelle?s perspective that makes us smile.
