Dawamesk (Thomas Mercier) is a self-educated artist, born in 1978 in Mouscron, Belgium and living in Brussels.
As of his childhood he is interested by everything audiovisual.
His artistic creations (painting, collage, silkscreen printing, drawings, installation…) personal, spontaneous and free of conventions have him situated into a “art brut”.
From the point of view of someone invested in the counter-culture he makes a certain form of »rebel » art.
For this exhibition his work, titled “Don’t Tag Me”, questions our digital identity.
He reworks old pictures and paintings of people long forgotten.
Through different techniques he “erases” their identity.
