About

Pierre Alechinsky (b. 1927) Seoul, from Official Arts Portfolio of the XXIVth Olympiad, Seoul, Korea, 1988 Lithograph in colors on Arches paper 30 x 22 inches (76.2 x 55.9 cm) (sheet) Ed. 244/300 Signed and numbered in pencil in lower margin Artist's Biography: Abstraction merges with representation in the paintings and prints of Pierre Alechinsky, known for combining colorful painting with black-and-white ink drawing. In 1945 he discovered the work of Henri Michaux, Jean Dubuffet and developed a friendship with the art critic Jacques Putman. In 1949 he joined Christian Dotremont, Karel Appel, Constant, Jan Nieuwenhuys and Asger Jorn to form the art group CoBrA. The group emphasized material and its spontaneous application, Alechinsky cultivated a lively aesthetic particularly evident in later acrylics and works on paper. Upon visiting Japan, he adopted the Eastern tradition of pouring ink onto the surface of paper spread out on the floor, rendering his subjects—erupting volcanoes, comically deformed creatures, waterfalls, dynamic skies—with a fluidity influenced by Japanese calligraphy. Personal legal and financial documents and often served as the base material for his works.
