Le Closier is a Belgian painter living in New York.

After moving to Paris in the early 2000's, mixing Pop Art and Street Art, he started painting on the walls of his Montparnasse neighborhood in Paris (famous in the 50's for being the gathering point of writers and painters i.e Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Picasso, Matisse, Cézanne, Modigliani....).

 

A few years later, Le Closier made official portraits for tennis players Serena Williams, Kei Nishikori, Gustavo "Guga" Kuerten, Bryan Brothers, David Goffin, Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Jeremy Chardy, American golf player Cristie Kerr and Paris-Saint-Germain's president Nasser Al-Khelaifi (among others).

In May 2016, he was asked by France Pavilion to paint a portrait of Chief Justice Stephen Breyer for the French/American business week at the French Embassy in Washington, DC.

 

Today, Le Closier creates colorful compositions inspired by celebrities, arts, comics, advertising,  fashion..., mixing people, brands and symbols on different supports (canvas, wood cutouts, sculptures...).

 

His works have been seen in public places, art fairs and galleries from Paris to New York, from Dubai to Melbourne, from LA to Miami ....
