Freddy Jacobs aka “Jaco” studied at the Royal Academy of Arts in Bruges, Belgium when he was young. He became civil engineer and started to paint in 2009 when he became 50 years of age. Jaco uses different materials in his paintings. His passion is creating unusual and unique art using texture as a base for his works. He paints with feeling, using colour and forms to express himself. The variety of mixed materials are bringing structure and effects in his paintings. He uses bright colours in an way that the paintings start to inter-act with the viewer, creating emotions and strong feelings. Jaco’s work is a bold mix of styles, ranging from sleek and contemporary to weathered and organic. He brings a subtle and sophisticated feel to his paintings through a unique balance of colour, composition and texture. The coloured mixed media are having their own dialogue with the audience. He brings a variety of theme’s as he gets inspired he always experiments to make some variations of the initial idea and series. He is constantly evolving and exploring new techniques which allows him to look at his work in a new light. This creative process gives him energy and satisfaction feelings that he transmits through his works to his viewers…..
Bio Wim adriaenssen
As a painter, Wim is a figurative painter, but knows how to use his materials in an almost abstract way, by looking at , for example, the ‘’gestes ‘’ of Alechinsky, using the possibilities of his arm and body to paint. Wim’s material research brought him in touch with Venetian Terpentine, an almost forgotten product to use with oil paint Because of the use of this specific technique , his paintings are filled with energy and movement. An energy which he canalizes to express different feelings of a (male) body.
The blanks on the canvas show his admiration for Chinese painting. The principle of ’’Wu Wei ‘’(to generate a maximum impact with a minimum of force) becomes very real in his paintings.
Wim has a way of showing us a certain kind of melancholy in his works, without becoming melodramatic. His works are loaded with emotion, and at the same time decorative, because of his balanced and well-thought compositions.
His work has been rewarded with several awards in Belgium throughout the years.
