Vincent Messelier is born in Kortrijk, Belgium on the 6th of October 1967. He started
painting in May 2006. He is a completely self-taught artist who’s very passionate about
his art. Vincent paints from his heart and soul with some jazzy music on the background.
Depending on the moment or his mood, some other music can also inspire his work.
In March 2011, he decided to sell his cash-collecting office, he had started up in 1992
and chose to live his real passion... Art!
In November 2011, he became a member of “Dubai Art Center” where he exhibited his
works and also kept his own art studio. In April that year, he exhibited in New York City,
at the Broadway Gallery. He developped his own style, called “Meridianism”. Vincent
uses palletknives and in his artwork, vertical and horizontal stripes and lines refer to the
worlds’ meridians. He uses acrylics, sometimes combined with wood, foam or other
materials. The artist also started a second line for hospitality and business, a concept,
blending his own photographs, while projecting on details of his own paintings. Horses,
historical buildings, birds, cars, sports... They all inspire him!
He exhibited in New York, Dubai, Paris, Brussels, Bruges, Den Haag, Amsterdam, Bari,
Barcelona, and has also been asked in Berlin, Los Angeles, Palermo, Milan, Las Vegas,
Toronto, Firenze, Lisbon and Casablanca. The artist also appeared in several books, as
there are ‘Contemporary Masters 2012’, ‘Important World Artists 2013’, ‘I segnalati’,
‘Artisti’, and ‘International Contemporary Artists’. He also works on customerdemand.
Art Tour International "Best artists of 2013
"His works are a medium to reach what consciousness can not reach. canvases are
a "little town" on which he does some performances without knowing their end. The
Painter is always guided by instinct, feelings and inspiration to forge, through his
Masterpieces, a part of the World told through the sign". L.L
