Mathieu Weemaels

Mathieu Weemaels is a contemporary Belgian artist who draws inspiration from abstract painters including Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, and Kandinsky. Each painting begins with the application of dry pastels which the artist makes himself and which he loves for their softness and lightness. He then applies oil colours to the canvas in a complicated process of layering whereby he develops depth and the overarching composition of the work. Weemael's states that he represents elements of the real world in his works, featuring simple everyday objects in still life compositions. The uniqueness of his work has earned him numerous exhibitions in Belgium, France, Italy, Spain and Denmark, as well as numerous awards including the prestigious Royal Academy art prize of Belgium.
