Paul Boudens - Graphic Designer
Paul Boudens. My favorite.

'The nicest job is always the next one'

Paul Boudens (1965) doesn't like designs with a shelf life of one day only. He wants his work to be tangible, to have sensitivity, you have to feel the human side of it. That is why according to Boudens it just doesn't work with a computer alone. And so he uses paint, amongst other materials. The result can be rough or sharp, somewhat broken or leaving a strange impression. As long as it has some effect. Some of his cleanest designs are so clean it becomes frightening.
In 1991 he graduated in Graphic Design & Illustration at the Sint-Lucaspaviljoen in Antwerp. From here he immediately started working as a freelance designer for the Belgian fashion guru Walter Van Beirendonck, with whom he charted a new direction for Van Beirendonck's house style. Soon after, assignments for fashion designers Wim Neels, Jurgi Persoons, Dries Van Noten, A.F. Vandevorst, Olivier Theyskens (amongst others), the Antwerp fashion academy, Interieur2000, Het Zuidelijk Toneel and the MoMu-Fashion Museum Province of Antwerp followed.

In the spring of 2000 De Velinx in Tongeren organised an exhibition of his work under the title 'Paul Boudens Graphic Design 1990-2000'. In 2001 Boudens was responsible for the art direction of 'FASHION2001 LANDED-GELAND', the ambitious fashion event in Antwerp. During this project he became art director and graphic designer of N°ABC magazine.
In 2002 his collaboration with choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Rosas started with the 'RosasXX' exhibition, a celebration of the dance group's 20th anniversary.
February 2003 brings assignments from Yohji Yamamoto in Paris, a brand-new exhibition at the MoMu gallery and the publication of 'Paul Boudens Works Volume 1'. This 248 page book is an overview of Paul Boudens' work of the last decade. Not a regular catalogue style overview, but a breathtaking explosion of images, forms and colours - translated into various techniques: silk-screen, fluorescence, black-on-black, UV varnish, overprinting - that simply shows the shear joy of designing. Creative, original and innovative. Longing for authenticity and eternity. A unique event in the Belgian art and publisher's world, a must for every aficionado of fashion and/or graphic design.

These are some images from his work with some of the Belgians...also published in his book entitled "Paul Boudens:Works Vol 1"

Hey thanks Anna for the extra images....always enjoyed the movie poster one he did for Jurgi. Really funny,indeed.

I actually had to go through the publisher's of his book to acquire a copy as it wasn't available in the US yet...dunno if it is now? It's really good.

Thank you Anna*. Congrats on that!

You know,I just realised how much Paul's vision reminds me of certain David Lynch.
