Jeroen Heeman, better known as Erosie, is a multi-talented artist who combines the disciplines of graffiti, conceptual art, illustration and typography. Painting in his work highlights the attraction for the transformation of the urban landscape. The decayed textures of the walls, vandalised and renovated, are sources of inspiration. Layer after layer on the canvas, pictorial writings let us perceive the geology of the work. Successive layers with faded colours illustrate time. At distance, a geometric shape distinguishes itself from the background and signs its composition. It evokes a letter from a mysterious alphabet or perhaps a drawing of an architectural plan.
He has had solo exhibitions at ALICE Gallery in Brussels, Galerie Celal in Paris, Mini Galerie in Amsterdam, and Nina Sagt in Düsseldorf, among others. His work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions such as Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Somerset House in London, and Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn.
