The unique sense of depth and perspective achieved through the brilliant use of colour by Belgium-born artist Francis Alÿs is what we particularly love about this painting. ⁠

Representing Belgium at the 2022 Venice Biennale, Mexico-based artist Francis Alÿs opened his first show in David Zwirner's Paris gallery on 27 May, presenting an intriguing and moving collection of observational works.

Based on his study of border regions experiencing socio-political conflict, his paintings take viewers to Jerusalem, the Turkish-Armenian border, and the Panama Canal Zone, to name but a few. ⁠
