Niels Vaes (°1987) is a Belgian artist working and living in Brussels. In his work, he approaches a variety of symbolic, historical and psychological themes. It consists mainly of sculptural interventions, experimental paintings and graphic research. Usually, he combines these things with thoughtful, multimedia and space-filling installations in both public and private areas. In 2010, he graduated in fine arts from the Mad-faculty in Hasselt, Belgium. The last ten years Niels mostly exhibited in Belgium and worked in different studios in the company of other artists. Niels also teaches model drawing and art crafts to the 5th and 6th grade students at De Wijnpers, a high school in Leuven, Belgium.
