From inception to present day Arte Antwerp mirrors a fusion of contemporary artistic expressions and subcultural tendencies. The directional aesthetic of Bertony Da Silva unveils a deep-rooted background in graphic design and an exploration of different art forms, ranging from modern architecture to music. Arte Antwerp is guided by a strong emphasis on the exchange of concepts and ideas, at once reflecting and engaging the creative landscape. Conceived of as a bridge between visionary communities, Arte Antwerp moves and connects across borders. In 2009 an experimental capsule T-shirt collection that unified different art forms into garments emerged as Arte Antwerp's first creation, shaping the distinctly hybridized vision from day one. Arte Antwerp matured into a cultivated creative house, proving its relevance by translating artistic and timely concepts into ready-to-wear collections.
