Delphine van Saksen-Coburg is an Anglo-Belgian artist. Delphine grew up in London and worked there as an artist until 2003 when she moved to Brussels to set up a new studio.

Delphine has earned a voice in the European art world as a non-conformist statement artist and colourist. She is known for creating multi-media artworks overflowing with colour, texture, and humor that address universal themes. From painting, video, neon sculpture and brass design pieces, her artworks are vibrant and playful. They are capable of lovingly inspiring the dispossessed, while also gently cutting the powerful and prideful down to the bone. Issues of identity, luxury, reputation, privilege and royalty often inspire Delphine’s work.

Her explicit use of words and language make her messages very straightforward, while her use of color and composition leaves space for whimsy and irony.
