About

Max Kesteloot, 1990 (BE) works in visual arts. His work develops around the paradox of the apparent absence of a subject in the final image. This gives every detail in his work the status of context. Max is also teaching at LUCA school of arts, Ghent. Where he’s currently instructing Mixed Media.
