The Artist

Within this new generation of slightly controversial Flemish artists, Wim Delvoye likes to get his inspiration from everyday objects, like this famous Riwoma suitcase. Wim Delvoye reinterprets drawing as a medium through the practice of tattooing, which he does on a range of different material. His work is fully anchored in daily life and a world full of movement.


Wim Delvoye’s 2013 untitled piece is an embossed aluminum suitcase (76 x 51 x 26 cm). The Flemish artist uses the tattoo aesthetics on this everyday object which symbolizes our newfound mobility thanks to modern means of transportation. The suitcase is a second-skin.
