Amazing moving art pieces on show at the Dubai Mall
Artist Wilhelm Van Weeghel is bringing his incredible artwork to the Middle East.
Beginning when he was still a college student, Weeghel has created canvases of shapes with in-built computer technology that moves the shapes across each surface.
His kinetic art combines abstract geometric design with complex computer systems, meaning the boldly-coloured squares and triangles migrate slowly around the canvases to generate an ever-changing series of patterns.
Weeghel is part of every step of the process, sketching each design, fixing together the moving parts himself and tracking out every movement using computer animation. His work is well known in the art world, featured in museums, galleries and private collections worldwide; it can also be enjoyed in public spaces such as hospitals and office buildings.
Now, Van Weeghel is putting his work on show in Dubai. His exhibition, hosted at MB&F M.A.D. Gallery and entitled Dynamic Structures, can be found in the Dubai Mall until Sunday September 15.
We’re in for a real treat.
