LUIS PÔLET

est né à Bruxelles en 1985. Après ses études à l’ESA le 75 et de nombreux voyages, il s’installe dans sa ville natale pour y approfondir sa peinture. Curieux, Luis Pôlet, recherche constamment les synergies entre les différentes formes d’expression. Nourrissant sa peinture de nombreuses collaborations, il s’exerce au street art, à la danse et à la performance. Après de multiples expositions du Moyen-Orient à la Chine et à travers l’Europe, la convergence de l’art occidental et oriental se présente comme évidente dans sa peinture : le geste précis et contemplatif de l’écriture et de l’encre combiné à sa fascination des maîtres de la Renaissance.

Ses peintures récentes questionnent l’histoire de l’art et notre manière de l’appréhender. Pôlet revisite les peintures de Rubens et de Michel-Ange par le prisme d’une perception contemporaine.

Il développe une maîtrise personnelle des encres et des acryliques les combinant entres elles pour faire transparaître la lumière et la couleur tout en offrant une profondeur enivrante.
C’est par l’enchevêtrement d’une écriture compulsive qu’il dessine l’organicité du tableau ouvrant et questionnant le regardeur sur l’émancipation de sa puissance visuelle.
Il travaille et alterne sa technique personnelle sur deux types de support : la toile de coton et le panneau à la flamande, l’un offrant la souplesse du tissu l’autre la rigidité du bois.


Luis Pôlet was born in Brussels in 1985. After completing his studies in the ESA school of arts “le 75”, he travels the world before returning to his home city to deepen his knowledge of painting. Of curious nature, Luis Pôlet is constantly in search of synergies between various art forms and expressions. His paintings are inspired by many collaborations with street art, dance and performance. His countless exhibitions in the Middle East, Asia and Europe combined with his fascination for the Renaissance masters have led to evidence in his work of the precision and contemplative nature of writing combined with the flowing nature of ink.

His most recent work questions our understanding of art history and art history itself. Pôlet’s paintings revisit the works of Rubens and Michelangelo through a contemporary lens.

The mesmerising depth of colour and light in his work is a result of his mastery of inks, acrylics and their complex interactions on the canvas.
The organic nature of his work releases the visual power of his art, through the use of intertwined motifs and compulsive writing.
He constantly refines his technique by alternating between cotton canvases and “flemish panels”, the former offering the malleability of fabric, the latter offering the rigidity of wood.
