Delphine de Saxe-Cobourg is an Anglo-Belgian artist. Delphine grew up in London and worked there as an artist until 2003, when she moved to Brussels to set up a new studio. In addition to her gallery and museum exhibitions, she has successfully worked on art-related projects with several global companies including coca-cola, bic, absolut and the red cross. Delphine has earned a voice in the European art world as a non-conformist statement artist and colourist. She is known for creating multimedia artworks overflowing with colour, texture and humour that address universal themes. From painting, video, neon sculpture and metal design pieces, her artworks are vibrant, playful and quirky. They are capable of lovingly inspiring the dispossessed, while also abruptly bringing the powerful and prideful back to reality. Issues of identity, power and justice often inspire Delphine’s work. Part of her artistic motivation is to offer the viewer a chance to see the bright side of life. Delphine’s explicit use of words and language make her messages very straightforward, while her use of colour and composition leaves space for whimsy and irony.
