ABOUT THE ARTIST
Bernard Villers is a Belgian painter, contemporary artist and publisher born in 1939. His work can be found in leading museums worldwide and private art collections.
He lives in Brussels. His works are primarily pictorial, mainly based on color associations. He founded the Éditions du Remorqueur and the Nouveau Remorqueur. His influences include Kurt Schwitters and Donald Judd.
He trained in painting at La Cambre, under the direction of Paul Delvaux and Jo Delahaut. He then studied silkscreen printing at Arts et Métiers in Brussels.
From 2004 to 2016, he released about sixty publications published by Le Nouveau Remorqueur.
His pictorial work is focused on color. It exploits the resources of matter and media.
"It may happen that a name suffices to announce the color. In my books, of course, words have more space. They have their own plasticity. They occupy the space, draw it. They can still evoke questions of form and color." - Bernard Villers
