Arpaïs Du Bois

Visit Website

Belgian artist Arpaïs Du Bois approaches man’s being-in-the-world in a personal and intimate way. Her manuscripts, drawings and texts are simultaneously sharp and ambiguous; playful and poetic observations of the world that surrounds her. She has exhibited extensively in Europe, including France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands and her native Belgium.
