  • Véronique Vanblaere (Véro), a Belgian artist, moved to Birmingham, AL
    in 1996, where she started and ran Naked Art, a gallery that focuses on
    non-traditional and functional art. She recently closed it after 20 years to
    focus full time on her art. Véro works in several mediums. Fiber art is a
    favorite, which includes sewing and creating wearable art, reworking and
    revamping clothing and bags to give the garments a new style and life.
    She constructs soft sculpture in the form of extravagant hats and
    luminaries which will often be part of art installations. She also works in
    mixed media on paper or canvas which sometimes morphs into much
    larger projects like murals for commercial establishments or private
    homes. Véro writes and directs animation films featuring the characters
    from her drawings or puppets that she conceives and builds. She and
    other locals started "Pardon My Puppet", the Birmingham puppet guild, and creates shows for a variety of puppet mediums. Her work has been featured at Miami Art Basel, Harvard University and the Cannes Film Festival.
