Read More

Jan De Maesschalck is a Belgian figurative painter who observes, selects, interprets and fantasises. He started his career as a draughtsman for different newspapers and (art) magazines. Nowadays he maintains the precision and the speed of the drawing in the creation of his paintings and because of his use of acrylic paint. He often depicts isolated women that seem withdrawn from daily routines and absorbed in their activities. The images of the figures he portrays have been taken from the media and not from live models. Subsequently De Maesschalck chooses specific fragments from these pictures to create his own image. The paintings also reveal the artist’s fascination with light and shadow and notable architectural spaces. The settings and images often give an impression of melancholy and intimacy, but are also influenced by Belgian surrealism.

Jan De Maesschalck was invited in 2015 for a solo exhibition during the Münsterland Festival in Billerbeck. Previously, he has exhibited works at the Phoenix Art Museum, Mu.ZEE in Ostend, Museum Dr. Guislain in Ghent, De Warande in Turnhout, the Museum of Ixelles and the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels.
