Reviews and statements

.............................................................................................................

"Boris's work is deeply rooted in the northern European tradition of line drawing, he swims his own channel in the gene pool of Heinrich Kley, Pierre Alechinsky, James Ensor and Palle Nielsen.

His book works are intense scribulations that suck the viewer into the vortex of his high protein ink well."

Henrik Drescher / CA

... although he's actually Belgian!"

"Boris Servais illustrates his words in sketchy ink line drawings with some tiny hatch marks for shading. I love his loose style."
