The work of Alain Biltereyst (b. 1965, lives and works in Brussels) illustrates his constant interest in the visual language of our urban environment. The artist explores the functionalities of commercial signage - typography, logos, advertising and graphic design - and the media it uses. In his work, he frees himself from narrative constraints and offers a visual and material experience. By exploiting his sources of inspiration from the public space, he transforms advertising aesthetics into geometric and abstract painting.
Founded in 1990, Xippas Paris is located in the heart of the Marais. The gallery works for the promotion of contemporary, emerging and confirmed artists, working in different disciplines. Since its creation, Xippas has been expanding its activities abroad. In 2010 and 2011, two galleries in Montevideo and Geneva are created. In April 2019 the new gallery Baronian Xippas was inaugurated in Brussels. The new exhibition space is open in Punta del Este (Uruguay) since January 2020.
