Arthur Bernard was born in Mechelen, Belgium, and has lived and worked there in addition to France and the U.S. He currently resides in the Netherlands. A note from the artist states, "My mixed media paintings are created by using drawing, painting, photography and collages. All this in both traditional and digital integration... The combination of pigments, polymers and collages should be brought up quickly, I do not want to think about it. It is the snapshot of the battle between creation and destruction that is so important."
