On the 26th and 27th of november 2011, the artfair Artief celebrates its 10 year anniversary in the Hallezaal, Diest (Belgium). The artfair shows the works of selected Belgian and international artists.
David De Graef selected together with Miraschi, a number of artists who each in their way, open up worlds. It is in the combination of all those dreamers that gives Artief its special character and that elicits intens reactions.
In 2011 we welcome in particular Yasha Young with Strychnin Gallery from Berlin. Strychnin is for many years now the pioneer of pop surrealism and low brow in Europe. Yasha Young is also the artistic director of the art fair Blooom ‘the creative industries art fair in Cologne.
