Walter Raes was born in St Niklaas in Belgium & moved to London in 1989. After living in the UK, he observes, “I think what is thrown away in London & around the world is criminal; it’s from these consumer society throw-outs, that I make my designs.”

For the last few years, Walter’s obsession has been creating WEARABLE & DESIGN ART entirely from household & industrial materials, frequently recycled from skips. His artistry is totally inspired by these rejects. Walter takes disposable remnants of our everyday lives & creates brilliant pieces which are explorations in form & function.

His works of art are witty physical manifestations of his views on the wastefulness of our present day society: baseball caps, trainers, shopping bags, electricians’ ties, baby dummys, ironing boards, Tetra packaging, plastic ring holders for cola cans, shoe trees, large cola bottles, worker boots, bicycle parts, plastic knives /forks, & coat hangers…
