Hello my name is Burry Buermans. I am a Belgian artist (°1982) based in Portugal. As a child I had a curious eye for art and the innocent dream to become an artist one day. I never attended art school but always experimented with different art forms. For a long time I was looking for my own style and medium until I randomly ended up making collages. My life motto is “Chase your dreams, wherever they take you”, so I collected old Trabant cars, started a theatre company, organized and decorated my own parties, and hitchhiked around the world. During one of my trips in Panama, Latin America, I was shot by robbers. This shocking event strengthened my passion for life even more. Back in Belgium I worked as a teacher and coordinated a youth service. In the summer of 2012, I moved to Portugal to focus on my work as an artist, making collages, and fulfilling my last childhood dream.
