Louise Mertens runs a Fine Art studio based in Antwerp - Belgium.

The studio provides ART, Visual Concepts, PHOTOGRAPHY - Creative/Art direction, Editorial Content AND Identity.
 

HER WORK became a trademark of herself, translations of her visual world and her admiration for purity, textures, materials and the unique sophistication of Japanese art. She is inspired by the human face and body, the mysterious and incomprehensible. “The art of the subtle but important details force you to look with more patience." Louise likes to step into dialogue with images through hiding and altering parts of her characters. Manipulation in his purest form.

Her artworks are exhibited and sold worldwide.
