Born in Belgium (1979), Wim Tellier is one of the most innovative and talked about contemporary artists working in Belgium today. His trademark is to create art installations with large pictures/blow-ups.
Wim is best known for his project, WE WISH, which he featured a 600m2 babypicture of his son Yenno, that travelled around the world being exhibited on several top locations. Among them was the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles.
But as any artist would concur, the sky is the limit. And so Wim Tellier came up with Protect 7-7, an ambitious global project culminating in the world's first art installation on Antarctica. Comprising six enormous blow ups together forming a 30.000m2 art installation, each a collage of the dreams and aspirations and the legacy of a single continent, everything was assembled by a team of 4 people on Antarctica, having to cope with 3000kgs of pictures. The breathtaking pictures of the art installation were photographed from the air with a DPM in minus 58 degrees.
In 2013 he created the art installation We Drift. It was an installation that confronts us with our own vulnerability. as members of the human race and as inhabitant of a planet in penil. Although the project is not finished yet. We’re planning to do more exhibitions to create awareness with the We Drift project.
After We Drift he created 2 projects for Tomorrowland in partnership with Canon.: floating
and the unity portraits.
For the unity portrait Wim designed a construction with 42 cameras, unique
in the world.
At the moment he’s working at a new artistic project TIME.
Launch will be at 2015
