Veks Van Hillik was born in 1988, in a small village of the southwest of France. Influenced by his elder brothers, he takes up drawing at a young age and finds his first source of inspiration from the nature surrounding him, its fauna and flora. Each painting or drawing from Veks Van Hillik presents itself like an ode to fantasy, like a secret window to his dreams and chimeras, of which each scene and character is a subtle mixture of innocence and darkness. “I work primarily with animals because their forms, their colors and their diversity is much broader than the human figure. Therefore I love the idea of animals playing human characters. There is also the fact that the animals are by nature fantastic creatures and supernatural! This inevitably evokes for me the universe of dreams and the unconscious, subject to what they are particularly fond of. The most used animal is certainly the fish. I don’t really know why, but it comes back very often in my work. He is floating everywhere; in water, air, not really flying, but levitating! Since I was a child I have been a lover of fishing and I imagine that this discipline as a child has marked me.” – Veks Van Hillik

Last show with the artist: Group show "Urban Animals".
As we care about environment and about the consequences that our actions can have on animals, we decided to create a show in which we remind people the beauty of our roommates and our planetAs we all know, deforestation is a topic that is getting more and more ignored in the last years, we decided to focus our show on the problems that it creates and we are willing to help the planet as much as we can. That's the reason behind the theme of "Urban Animals", and the mission will be of donating a part of the proceeds to WWF. Our help will consist in donating 1 ectar to the Amazon rainforest for reforestation for every piece sold during the exhibition.
