Born in 1984, Beerens lives and works in the region of Paris. His work combines his two passions: graffiti and the underwater world. His passion for the underwater world gives him a special sensitivity for nature and the animal world that become his favourite themes. They are the starting point of his series Modern Fables, where the artist addresses current issues around pollution, destruction of the environment, animals in captivity, intensive farming. His work takes a colour particularly committed to the animal cause and ecology. In 2015 he painted a piece on the ground, representing a school of fish whirling in a luminous well, a real bubble of oxygen in the heart of the city. This was the starting point of a new project: Deeplight.
This project is inspired by the fascinating natural cavities the artist encounters during his underwater dives or speleology. Michael Beerens goes further in his technical painting to magnify the interaction between the light and pattern.
With the poetic visions of Deep Light, Michael Beerens tries to erase the daily gloom of concrete and reveals moments of grace, unique to Nature.
