Galerie Fons Welters proudly presents Théophile Blandet in the front space of the gallery.

Thick smears of pigment cover the computer screen in the form of a Kim Kardashian selfie, a Bob Ross YouTube video, and cult Japanese figure Hatsune Miku. By painting popular internet images onto this window to the digital world, Théophile Blandet shuts off our access to its omniscience. In Fountain of Knowledge, the painted images freeze the screen, just as we become frozen in the face of the sheer volume of available information spilling out. The efficiency of technology is reduced to zero and becomes obsolete. The paintings are the opposite of the original images. They take hours, even days to make and have a physical staying power.


Théophile Blandet recently graduated from the Design Academy, Eindhoven.
