Arne Quinze

The Sequence (scale model, 2008)

Arne Quinze was born in 1971 in Belgium. Once a graffiti artist, Quinze now creates large and small sculptures, drawings, paintings and large-scale installations. Recurring fundamentals in his oeuvre are the use of multiple types of wood, electrical colours in fluorescent paint, and themes referring to social interaction, communication, and urbanism.
What drives Quinze is the belief in the possible realisation of an idealistic society where all individuals communicate and interact, aiming to bring people together and foster vigorous dialogue. His installations are built to provoke reaction and to intervene in the daily lives of passersby confronted with his sculptures. His unconventional public installations feature in various public spaces, including various city centres in Belgium (Cityscape, The Sequence), Germany (The Traveller), France (Camille, Rock Strangers), Lebanon (The Visitor), China (Red Beacon) and the USA (Uchronia, Timegate), among others.
