An art painter during already several decades. Born in Ghent Belgium 1933, but living in Ostend Belgium, where the latest paintings are done.
Contemporary fantasy realism painting, mostly inspired by the figures and portraits. Also animal portraits are my favourites.
The way in which the humans are carefully integrated in a total image, surrounded by dreams, creatures and colours, created by the painter. The humans are a result in former lines and colours, born in the mind of the artist. Each technic can act separately, but achieve the beauty in a compact of the total effect.
