JOHAN MUYLE (Montigny-sur-Sambre, 1956)
Muyle is an artist with an international reputation, who lives and works in Liège. He represents plastic arts in Belgium, thanks to his regular exhibitions in European galleries, museums and art centres in Europe, but also via his participation in international fairs and biennales. Johan Muyle is a great fan of construction materials, and he happily uses objects from building sites in different forms in his works of art. In 1994 he went to the Congo for the first time, where he made craft objects with children. He went on to use these objects in his assemblages. He achieved international fame from 1998 onwards, when he presented “We don’t know him from Heden” at the Sao Paolo Biannual. Since then, private and international exhibitions have followed in.
