Niels ‘Shoe’ Meulman
The Unearthly Paintings
July 12 - August 9, 2014
In his third solo exhibition with White Walls, Niels Meulman (Shoe) expands on his philosophical musings on existence, outer space and science through a new series of typographical paintings.
These majestic paintings are a continuation of the signature style Shoe is best known for: a medieval style of “Calligraffiti” in which he uses the prefix, “un” as a symbol of reversal and words as images to express abstract ideas. However, in this body of work, Shoe also introduces new aspects such as technologically advanced paint and a non-linear writing order.
Also included in the exhibition will be a series of unique works on paper with the marking 35 Years of Shoe as the artist celebrates the momentous anniversary.
