Frédérick Mouraux Gallery is pleased to present a successful collection of works by Bosnian artist Kenan Hasimbegovic for his first solo exhibition in Brussels.
Hasimbegovic studied Fine Arts in Bosnia, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo. For the past 10 years he has been living in Antwerp. He works and exhibits in Belgium.
There are artists who know how to make us travel in an intimate world, a world that we thought forgotten and a world of rediscovered moments.
Kenan Hasimbegovic plunges us, with immense pleasure, into his childhood and takes us to a world that we have known ourselves; one of innocence and the warmth of happy days.
Frédérick Mouraux chose to show us paintings on canvas and paper, collage, and mixed media, in light but vivid colors.
From the first painting, we leave the present time to reach that of childhood, fragments of our memories. The works reveal happy moments, lived in family in his country of origin, of its customs and traditions. These small pieces of life painted in bright colors rejoice our hearts and give us the impression of a slight joy.
We become witnesses of his memories, windows on a world of tenderness. The feminine presence is important, loving and cheerful women of several generations, grandmother, mother, sister.
Time that passes slowly, calmly, to the rhythm of needlework and the rhythm of daily tasks.
These paintings know how to intrigue us, to challenge us to recall our own memories. One of the artist’s strengths is to reveal with great modesty that certain childhood happiness seems to accompany a lifetime.
This tall and wise artist is particularly touching. His talent is expressed by bright colors, without any aggressiveness and his creations of snapshots of life, are filled with poetry.
