Antwerp artist Dennis Tyfus by the police of… (Antwerp)
Dennis Tyfus, an Antwerp artist, was created by the police because he made a drawing in which he tortures members of students. That writes De Morgen. The drawings are part of a series of self-portraits in which he turns against KVHV and NSV, two (far) right-wing clubs according to the newspaper.

The series of self-portraits is called Upgrades and Downgrades. They hung earlier this year in the Tim Van Laere Gallery. There he made adaptations and parodies, but also the portraits with Typhus in the lead. In the drawings, the members of KVHV are cooked, tortured, beheaded and tied to a truck, among other things. That is why Brecht Crabbe, vice-chairman of KVHV Leuven, is fighting a complaint against Typhus for inciting hatred and violence.
Typhus himself would have come out with the message via Instagram, but that message is no longer online. For example, he would have said that he wanted to attack personally in the images. “They are by no means attacks,” he says. According to him, the depicted situations are “a baptismal ritual that got out of hand”. Typhoid can also imagine similar situations in similar situations. In the series he is also attacked by animals.
