Soon after completing his studies, Belgian visual artist Pierre Debusschere was singled out by the fashion community as an important new voice in image making.
Debusschere’s work is intensely layered with meaning and symbolism. The artist invites interpretation by deliberately cultivating tension. His practice is intimately entwined with the worlds of music and fine art and the work reveals his enduring fascination with movement and the human form.
His engagement with both personal work and commercial projects allows Debusschere to investigate these preoccupations and the themes of our time from diverse perspectives, bringing a richness and clarity of vision to the entire body of work. His instantly recognizable style makes him a leading figure of his generation in his field.
Debusschere’s photographs have been featured in fashion publications including Vogue Italia, Vogue Germany, Exhibition Magazine, AnOther Magazine, Dazed & Confused, and Atmos. His advertising clients include Dior, Chanel, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Raf Simons, YSL, Comme des Garcons, Nike, Calvin Klein, Chaumet, and MAC. He created music videos for Beyoncé in 2020 and 2014 and for Alicia Keys in 2016 and works continually in the electronic music space.
In 2013, at the invitation of the Villa Noailles, Debusschere created a book, exhibition, and hour-long film entitled “I Know Simply That The Sky Will Last Longer Than I”. The film was exhibited in the Festival de Hyères (France).
Debusschere presented his second exhibition, UNcovered, at MAD in Brussels in 2018. The accompanying book was published by Triangle Books and the exhibition traveled to Bookmarc in Tokyo. Debusschere’s latest exhibition, Spectrum, opened at The Room at 254Forest in September 2020.
