Walt van Beek

Walt Esch Van Beek
*1981, works and lives in Brussels, BE
Walt Van Beek’s practice is located at the crossroads of design, performance, painting and installation. His work stems from his childhood as a skater. For 20 years he has skateboarded in a professional and almost obsessive manner. His literal ideas resulting in performances and designs fit in urban terrain and clearly work in constant contact with the public place.
Having initiated several collaborative projects and exhibition formats such as Wai Wai Space (Brussels) and w-o-l-k-e (Brussels), collaborations and the creation of experimental platforms also have become an essential part of his work.
