Yves Zurstrassen lives and works in a former cotton factory in Brussels that he has gradually and painstakingly restored and enlarged. There, he creates canvasses on a monumental scale in bright colours and
combines collage, décollage and contemporary techniques.
The work of this artist has undergone a significant evolution since his beginnings in the 1970s.
His works in a painterly style leaning towards expressionism are created in series according to his
explorations. They may lead him to create an explosion of 1001 colours, or take a melancholy turn into virtually monochromaticcolour fields.
