Max Werner

Belgium-born artist Max Werner studied at the Byam Shaw School of Art and the Slade School at UCL.

His work depicts worlds familiar and unknown to us and, with his use of light, space and juxtaposition of forms, he creates strong enigmatic images in a world just a step away from reality. Walking a fine line between realism and surrealism, he never fully steps into either.
