Since I had a creative epiphany at the Burning Man festival in september 2017, I enrolled myself at the Art Academy of Mortsel, Antwerp and started sketching and painting, something I had not done for 30 years. I did make 3D artwork on the computer some 15 years before. I taught myself to draw in 6 months and haven’t stopped drawing and painting since.
I live in Antwerp with my girlfriend and 2 young adult boys. At home I have my atelier where I draw and paint figurative art, mainly portraits. With my art, I try to create something visually striking to convey some sort of strong emotion.
My art is populated with sad, melancholic people with suppressed emotion, often beautiful but damaged woman.
