HIS ART
As most artists, he started drawing at a young age and was encouraged by his family to test everything. He is currently fascinated by traditional chinese art and has developed his own interpretation of it. His art is about speed, accuracy, the line, the human gaze, eyes, people, contact. New ideas are tested on small size until they are ‘autographed’, meaning that they can be drawn as fast as a signature. This speed gives the line a dynamic effect. He sells his work online via his shop here. All works are wrapped in acid-free paper and rolled on a cardboard tube. This is than packed in a larger cardboard tube and sealed.

 

the Press says:

Eelen is voortdurend op zoek naar een mooie lijn met Chinese inkt: “Het is mijn kick om snel en accuraat te tekenen. Met een gesatureerd penseel wil ik met zo weinig mogelijk lijnen een figuur neerzetten die u als kijker aanstaart. Ik werk nooit naar levend model maar maak wel steeds figuratieve tekeningen.”

Omdat het voor hem zo snel moet gaan weet hij op voorhand nooit precies wat het eindresultaat zal zijn: is het een hij of een zij ? Oud, jong ? Wat vertelt de blik van de persoon, zie je boosheid, droefenis, woede, teleurstelling? Elke tekening heeft iets magisch en die magie kan je alleen maar ter plaatse ontdekken en beleven.
