Walter Raes comes from an artistic family in St Niklaas in Belgium and moved to London in 1989.
After living in the UK, he observed, “I think that what is thrown away in London and around the world is criminal; it’s from these consumer society throw-outs, that I make my designs.”
For the last 6 years, Walter’s obsession has been creating WEARABLE & DESIGN ART entirely from household and industrial materials, frequently recycled from skips. His artistry is totally inspired by these rejects. In short, he takes the disposable remnants of our everyday lives to create his brilliant pieces, explorations in form and function.
