"On a white empty square
I try to make beautiful
that which others find disturbing.
I try to convert everyday emotions
into an unfamiliar setting.
I play with contradictions as beauty and decay,
happiness and tragedy
or chaos and harmony.
You could consider my artwork as a realistic image with a filter.
From the fairytale naivety of the spectrum…
to the dark brutality end of it."
- Frederik Gheysen -
I’m an Belgian artist who has been drawing my whole life. I had to face the fact that I loved painting too much not to pursue it as a career. I signed up for the airbrush course in Kortrijk (Belgium) when I was 19 years old.
Ideas and knowledge are always changing.
I am not tied to any particular art medium. It doensn’t matter whether a work consists out of acrylic or pixels. But more important to me is to visually represent the dreamscapes that I envision.
Exhibitions and art gallery
In 2002 I started participating at both national and international art fairs, such as Airtist, Kunstzin, Zibodem, … When I was 24 I held my first solo exhibition at the Huyze Leopold Galery in Bruges.
A couple of year later I won the 1er Prix d’honneur vermeille on the 38th International Art Contest of Wallonie.
In 2020 I opened my ‘Creations by Frederik Gheysen’ art studio in Nieuwpoort. Where I exhibit permanently my newest works of art.
