Counterparts attract:When all weddings and events gave way to a calmer life, a Brussels’ Café Costume establishment went looking for an alternative use for one of its lounges. In came Denis Meyers. Denis Meyers is the first artist in line. As an artist with 25 years of experience creating, he is the perfect counterpart to a seemingly cordoned off portion of fashion.The idea of this collaboration really resonated with Meyers, given that the contemporary artist is all about juxtapositions.

"For me, wearing a suit is the epitome of elegance", thus urban artist Meyers whose work is centred around street art, graffiti and comic books. His mixture of heavy black & white contrasts and bold lettering will also be the art signature of choice for the CC collab. "Every month, I start filling a new diary with sketches to collect my thoughts and memories. I wanted to transfer this concept to CC as well by using my art to talk to people working here, visiting this place or just looking in." Resulting in wall-to-wall texts, notes and drawings. Covering up every bit of empty wall.

“For me, wearing a suit is the epitome of elegance"

Meyers unleashes his experiences talking to tailors and clients onto any canvas available to him. Any because Meyers' graphic expression isn't limited to the walls of the CC venue. Throughout the next few weeks, Meyers will, among other things, also be using a white suit as a canvas, an exclusive costume lining and other accessories such as a bandana as his canvas.

Denis Meyers' feest van juxtaposities - gaande van "papier vs stof" en "stad vs klassiek" tot "zwart vs wit" - is van 24 juni tot 3 juli te zien in de Leon Lepagestraat 24 in Brussel. In die periode zal het kunstwerk blijven groeien en inspiratie putten uit u, de bezoeker, maar ook uit de omgeving en de gemeenschap. U zult ook een kunstwerk mee naar huis kunnen nemen als voering in uw suite of een bijpassende bandana.
