Thomas Renwart (°1995) graduated in 2019 at LUCA School of Arts gaining his masters in Textiles. Not so long after that he started to be represented by Bruthausgallery (Waregem, BE).
From there on, he developed a textiles practice where craftsmanship and poetic depictions of a horticultural universe constantly meet.
Departing from his collections of his pressed Daffodils & flowers, butterflies and textiles, he creates hybrids of landscapes and stillives.
Starting with written matter, a world is built around it, carefully translated into tactile matter. Thomas' techniques are jacquard weaving, embroidery, quilting and digital printing.
Renwart's studio is at NUCLEO, where he spends much of his time caring for and building a Daffodil garden.
Next to his textile practices, Renwart also has a love for creating artist books, with his first artist book 'Comme si de rien n'était' published by MER. B&L early 2021 and many more to come.
For his crafts research Renwart was awarded with two Henry Van de Velde 2021 Awards.
