A Belgian Friend (2016) is a reworking of an original ink drawing from one hundred years ago, dated 7 June 1916. This new Screenprint version has been cleaned of the damage in the original and the characters have been united to stand side by side.
The text reads ‘Comme Allies, On Se Comprend Toujours’, which translates as, ‘As Allies, We Are Always Together’.
A lot of my artwork is inspired by reading about history. A Belgian Friend is my homage to an anonymous artist from one hundred years ago.
