He has developed his own kind of style: “meridianism”.
He works with pallet knives and you always can recognize vertical and horizontal stripes and lines that are corrections of the chaos he sometimes put on the canvas. They are referring to the meridians of the Globe. Acryl is his medium and sometimes he combines with pieces of wood, foam or other materials.
He also started a second line for hospitality and business. A concept where he takes pictures of his own works where he combines pictures (that he took himself) of several themes, like horses, historical buildings, birds, cars, sports, eagles… These works are mostly projected on an original painting or at least details. Messelier is working also together with other artists and photographer because he is awared that art in the future and working together with the same passionated collegues is an incredible synergy and magnificent.He works also on customer demand.
He won several international awards and appeared in several artbooks worldwide that recognizes him in the artworld as contemporary master.
