SPECIAL FEATURE: In Conversation with Kasper Bosmans

In April 2023, we visited Kasper Bosman at his home and studio in Brussels. Our conversation focused on the stories behind his work, process, latest projects, and his background as an artist, including his childhood.

Kasper Bosmans, born in Lommel (Belgium) in 1990, employs storytelling by creating narratives with multiple references from different cultural and historical sources. From an intuitive anthropological approach, he examines contemporary life’s vestiges of local traditions and mythological symbols.

Bosmans has gained recognition for his unique and thought-provoking pieces that explore themes such as cultural identity, tradition, and belief systems. His work often combines elements of the past with contemporary perspectives, creating a multi-layered visual experience.
