BJORN


   

Surrounded by Giants was founded in 2012 by the talented illustrator Bjorn Bossu. His lowbrow art gives you a glimpse of how he handles reality: with an amazing twist. Colours, skeletons, bearded men, birds and sharp lines, mixed and matched to create a parallel universe where anything is possible.

He has been drawing for as long as he can remember, it’s an essential part of his existence, it’s true passion. In the course of his art education, he developed a great love for illustrators such as Mike Mignola, Jeremy Fish, Loisel, Tardi, Dalek, Jeff Smith, …

Bjorn became a tattoo artist in 2015, learning the essential skills from Dagmar and bringing so much talent and friendship into our shop. The transformation of his work from paper to skin created a whole new level of possibilities, the results are stunning.

For Bjorn, anything can be his canvas: from paper to skin, walls, skatedecks, books, textile and so much more.

His home studio is always filled with music, creating an atmosphere that inspires him to work his magic.

Bjorn also is a loving and devoted dad. His children inspire him through their own drawings, their play, their stories, their toys, through the life and love that they bring into the house.

The Liner is not a regular tattooshop, it’s an art-house. Basically, this means that The Liner is not a person but a building. A house where different artists meet and collaborate. It’s a place where we feel connected as artists and fill each others needs in a creative way.

This is the place where we can work in our own universe, far away from society and everyday life. This is the place where we feel good, we laugh, create and drink coffee. Whenever you walk through this door you can sense the inspiration and feel comfortable. It feels like coming home.

The Liner is the home base of a few artists, but other creative people also often work here. This combines a lot of artistic branches, from illustration to stage setting or furniture design, from fiber art and needle work to photography.

Not only tattooing and designing is part of The Liner, we also have a sewing area, a sculpture atelier and a multifunctional workshop–and-events area. We feel very comfortable about our quiet and harmonic environment and because of that, we choose not to allow walk-ins. The Liner is a closed shop/workspace, which means you always have to make an appointment (for a tattoo project, the workspace or to discuss any upcoming projects).

If you have any questions about the liner, please contact us on info@theliner.be

We will be honoured to help you in your search for something you seek but cannot find. 

Lots of love, THE LINER TEAM
