1. Jan Fabre

    Jan Fabre is an established artist with a long rap sheet — having shown and made installations everywhere from The Royal Palace in Brussels to The Louvre Museum in Paris. It’s impossible to pigeonhole him down into one medium, since he’s worked with materials as diverse as bic ballpoint pens and beetle wings. Not to mention, he’s also an author and theater director on top of everything else.

    About Jan Fabre
    visual artist, theatre maker and author

    For more than thirty-five years, Jan Fabre (b. Antwerp, 1958) has occupied a leading international position as a groundbreaking visual artist, theatre maker and author. In the late seventies he took courses at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Municipal Institute of Decorative Arts and Crafts, both in Antwerp. He has become well known to a wide audience with The Hour Blue (1977-1992), a series of deep-blue Bic ballpoint drawings, the Tivoli castle (1990), Heaven of Delight (2002), in which he covered the ceiling of the Mirror Room at the Royal Palace in Brussels with jewel beetle wing-shields, his open-air sculptures, including The man who measures the clouds (1998), Searching for Utopia (2003) and Totem (2000-2004), and such recent installations as Chapters I-XVIII (2010) and Pietas (2011).

    Saw one of his exhibits at the Louvre in 2008. This piece gave me goosebumps, it was so weird, and deep, and creepy
