Multi-disciplinary artist Wim Legrand was born in Belgium, where he honed his skills as master printmaker at a prominent international centre for graphic arts, after completing his studies in visual arts in 2000. His career as a painter has steadily advanced in parallel. To date, Legrand has had two solo exhibitions in Belgium and has participated in numerous group exhibitions in South Africa, Belgium and Germany. 'Brouhaha', exhibited at 99 Loop in April 2016, was Legrand’s first solo show in South Africa.
He currently lives and works in Cape Town, where he runs Black River Studio – a production space that collaborates with artists on fine art screen printing projects - and 50ty50ty, an online collection of limited edition screenprints by South African artists.
