Atelier Pica Pica is Boris Magotteaux (1978), Manuel Falcata (1979) and Jerome Degive (1980), all born and raised in Liege, Belgium.

The collective has a very distinct, personal and yet somehow obvious¬†universe. You will, provided you’ve kept somewhat of your inner child, be simply marveled by their simple constructions and colors. Speaking of construction, these Industrial Cooling Towers were just built right next to our building, if you are interested in having one on your grounds, then check out how ours were built.

What seems simple at first, is in fact the result of a collection of multiple references and different techniques. Through photography, sculpture and painting, Atelier Pica Pica develops a very personal alphabet. A shape, subject or color skips from an art work or medium to the next with absolute fluidity and coherence. The sculptures influence the paintings that influence the photography and vice-versa.

The 3 artists from Atelier Pica Pica produce all the paintings, drawings, photographs and installations jointly. They have worked together since 1999, first within the ERS collective and as Atelier Pica Pica since 2007.
