Thierry Delsart

Brussels, Belgium, 1960

His Artwork has been published in several magazines such as Saber & Sabor magazine, Vanidades South American Women Magazine, Select + and Selected Views.

“After a quick love at first sight with Barcelona in the summer of 1986, when I crossed the city by car to reach the Ferry towards Ibiza, I decided to come back the next summer. One week was enough to deeply fall in love with this city. Its architecture, its human dimension, its priviledged location between the sea and the mountains, the youth in the streets, the preolimpic effervescense, Barcelona’s design.. I had no choice, I had to settle down here. In December 1987 I became a citizen of Barcelona. The soul of Barcelona is present in all my Artworks, even if it’s not visually present, it is implicitely. I cannot separate my creativity from the place that welcomed me and created a new “me”. 

The vision of the Artist

"I don’t think I ever take a picture by pure instinct. Sometimes, the images are composed in my head almost instantly when I look through the lens, sometimes, imagination comes first and I may draw in my scrapbook as a first step. Anyhow my camera is my canvas and the light is my brush. Then, I do guide my eyes in the viewfinder until I really get what I’ve foreseen, before I’d push the trigger. When you’ll watch my pictures I want you to get there, where I have been and feel the same sensations like if you’d see it for real. Perhaps almost feeling vertigo on a high skyscraper, the smoothness of the sheets of a bedroom, the urge to get into a relaxing bathtub, or, when I go beyond reality I hope you’ll feel the secret emotions that I felt. Imagination has been the leading path through my life. The consistent thread of investigation in different visual areas. It has been the essence of the first part of my career in advertising as an Art Director and it is now the link behind my creative photography. Lately I’m pushing my own limits and I keep on investigating, there are so many images in my head that are still to be shown!"
