First, I will introduce you to my world, my paintings, graphic novels and more. I will show you some of the materials I use (a mixture of traditional and less so, such as crushed autumn leaves, sweet wrappers, Sahara sand etc.) and talk about my creative process. You will then have a go yourself and play with a few different materials. Don't worry if you've never done an art class in your life, I will offer you advice and help you along the way. You will leave with a unique insight into an artist's world and work, a hands-on experience of what goes into making an artwork, and a creation of your own.
I'm a self-taught artist whose work is in the collections of the Museum of Spontaneous Art in Brussels and the Russian Cultural Centre of Belgium, among others. I also teach art to children and adults. I love to show people that they can express themselves, create their dreams without the need for years of professional training. I also enjoy giving people an opportunity to gain an insight into an artist's life and creative process.
We will explore a selection of materials, from traditional paints and pencils to chocolate wrappers, crushed autumn leaves,…
You will visit my cozy and informal atelier which is located in a very nice, off the beaten track area of Brussels with good public transport links.
The atelier is located on the third floor without an elevator. I also have a cat who will certainly come out to greet you so if you have cat allergies, this is something to bare in mind.
