Contemporay Art...from oil to acrylic
Paul Hofman, born in Ostend (Belgium) on June 18 th, 1958Drawing has always been my passion and at a young age
I enrolled into drawing and painting classes in the
"Art Academies" of Bruges and Deurne (Antwerp).After a long period of 16 years without any art
at all and after a call from the Municipality
of my home community "Ranst" for
a group exhibition, I actively
started painting again in 1991.Initially I started using oil
paint but since 2001 I
discovered the benefits of
acrylic paint ant until today
I'm still trying to improve on my technique. I'm fascinated
by vivid colors and I try to develop a very personal and
contemporary art.Nowadays a lot of artworks I paint are linked to current and
sometimes sensitive themes.My paintings are a mix of abstract and pop-art.
Lambertus Vermeiren once called me… a progressive realist,
whose works are sometimes close to pointillism, impressionism and
pop-art ( Black City, Flower City and Burj Khalifa are typical examples.
In recent years I have exposed both at home and abroad, including, Lier,
Ghent, Antwerp, Haarlem and Hasselt…..
Making art with discarded materials such as torso, mannequins and car parts
has become part of my passion.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work,
