Spear

Painting since 2002, Spear is a Belgian painter based in Brussels. His creations, both outside and inside, are his way to give a social and humanist message to remind us the importance of the Person with his feelings and emotion in a society which has a tendency to lose human values. His inspiration comes from travels made around the world. Those travels allowed him to be aware of different social reality and discover a different way of thinking and living but also made him questions our lifestyle and values.

Spear is fascinated by old masters, their techniques and the incredible power of narration in their paintings. He is also very inspired by contemporary artists. His work is a slow transition from an academic formation into a contemporary representation passing from a controlled realism to a more spontaneous and deconstructed painting.
