Belgium-born artist Bart Kuykens successfully navigated both the art world and commercial photography since the outset of his career. Following the global success of his hugely successful automotive art books 'A Flat6 love affair', he has attracted the attention of world-class actors, musicians, and media personalities who became subjects of his powerful black and white portraits. Bart goes beyond aesthetics with his grainy black and white signature style and the analogue universe he creates for all surrounding him. What he seeks above all is a raw and honest bond between him and his subject. Art requires sacrifice, and this mindset fastens him to a life devoted to his craft. Whatever it takes.
