Kasper Bosmans is invited for a residency of one month in RAVI (residence de la ville de Liège) in the framework of the exchange project Het Kanaal/ Le Canal.

The artistic practice of Kasper Bosmans knows many forms, but is essentially based on the creation of esthetic objects without matter. For example during an exhibition in 2012 in Extra City Kunsthal Antwerpen, Kasper Bosmans released a snake. In his own words he said not with the goal to start up a discussion or relate to a certain subject, but just because it was a beautiful snake. In his studio he creates superficial paintings and drawings, departing from a grid. ‘The most of my paintings are illustrations without content’.

Kasper Bosmans is currently laureathe at the Higher Institute of the Arts (HISK, Ghent and graduated with a master at the Royal Academy of Antwerp.
