Jelle Martens’s eye catching work combines strong graphic blocks of colour woven together with saturated grainy photography to create dynamic visual palettes. Jelle Marten is a Belgian Artist, Photographer and Graphic Designer and has exhibited his work in Leuvens and Gent, Belgium and in Cork, Ireland as part of the Cutting Edges – Contemporary Collage exhibition at the West Cork Arts Centre. That’s about all I can find out about this mysterious character. The section of a quote from his site below gives a little more insight into his work.

I’m fascinated by his ‘In the Quivering Forest series’, reminds me of art projects we use to do in primary school but the results were probably not quite as sharp as Jelle’s. Find more of his work on his site below or on his filckr.
