GraffitiStreet presents the debut London solo show by hugely successful Belgian street artist Joachim. Joachim is a young, prolific and highly talented street artist from Antwerp, Belgium.
His distinctive graffiti pop-style is impossible to ignore. He is well known for his childlike spontaneity, as well as being willing to experiment with a wide range of styles.Complicated compositions, and a playful use of colours, can be seen throughout the artist’s body of work.
Joachim enjoys creating both street art and pieces in his own studio. He considers himself a full-time, utterly dedicated artist. With multiple street art murals to his name, sell out prints and shows across Europe, Joachim has earnt his reputation within the urban art scene.
Taking its title from his overwhelming passion to create, ‘Born to Paint’ will showcase Joachim’s latest works on canvas and a number of unique installations. There will also be limited edition screen prints available at the show and a free exclusive ‘Born to Paint’ t-shirt for the first one hundred visitors*.
Joachim comments about his non-stop desire to paint and create, “Every second of the day I’m creating art, even if I’m not doing it … I dream about it! You could even say that other commitments, such as buying food or paying bills, things that other people find normal, slows me down… if it was up to me I would never eat again… art is what I was born to do!”.
