Stéphane Mandelbaum

Stéphane Mandelbaum, painter, draughtsman

Stéphane Mandelbaum was born in 1961. He was a dislexic child, but he showed very early predispositions for drawing. He took classes in painting, learned about the engraving discipline in which he will excel. Nevertheless, he will give it up, considering it too slow for his expression.

The time was counted to him. He was 25 years old when his body, the face disfigured by acid, was found near a lock, close to Namur. Executed by one of his accomplice, after the theft of a Modigliani which turned out to be a forgery.

« He was his own miner, eager, feverish, in trance. What he returned in the day was not the taste of all » said the poet Marcel Moreau. Bacon, Pasolini, Rimbaud, Goebbels, sex, violence, underworld, jewishness take place in his drawings.

Guggenheim museum targeted by protesters for accepting money from family with OxyContin ties

Nan Goldin : “We’re here to call out the Sackler family, who has become synonymous with the opioid crisis. We’re here to call out the museums who allow the Sackler name to line their halls, tarnish their wings, to honor the family who made billions off the bodies of hundreds of thousands.”
