Street ART Gallery Artifex, Oude Koornmarkt, Antwerp, Belgium

Artifex Street Art Gallery

In 2007, Steve Locatelli and his wife opened “Artifex” in Antwerp city.
At Artifex you can find Steve Locatelli's work and often he makes exhibitions with other (Inter)National artists. But lately his focus has been on his own work.
Steve Locatelli
is a Belgian contemporary artist known for his brightly coloured pieces often featuring skulls. He is an important figure in the street art world whose pieces can be found all over Belgium, including Brussels, Ghent, and Antwerp, as well as abroad, in the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Russia, New York, among others.
Skull ART
Born in a town with rich street art scene – Brussels – the artist started on the graffiti scene in the early 90s. Many of his works from that years were made along the metro lines. Locatelli’s passion for street art drove him to conquer forbidden boundaries and his works were often seen on “illegal” sites. Over the years, he has developed his unique style of cumulative shapes and textures. The final image – often depicting skulls – resolves itself from a mass of colour and forms. The results are captivating, being celebratory and seductive, as well as ominous and haunting.

“I like the symbolism of skulls. It is so universal, you can not tell if it was a boy or a girl or if it was white, African or Chinese person. We are all the same under it all!”
