Thank you for visiting my page, I live and work in London now for longer than my native Belgium. I started painting aged 15 as I was fascinated by all art forms and particularly paintings of Hyeronimus Bosch. “The Garden of Earthly Delights” inspired me as it did to Miro, Calder, Dali, Picasso and many others but many other artists fascinated me in a rather ecclectic perhaps eccentric mix, Yves Klein and "Old Masters"
In the 80's as I arrived in London, I used to sign and be secretively known as "X", possibly as very few could pronounce my name then but also as J-F. I brushed shoulders and more :-) with Anthony d'Offay, Andy Warhol, Peter Blake, Gilbert and Georges, Gerard Richter, Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon and many others.
I founded the European Open platform helping artists exhibit their work in unconventional spaces and at the work place, thus my first exhibition was at Banque Paribas in the City of London.
Since, I exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, the Royal Festival Hall, The Arts Club, the French Embassy and the Banque Paribas amongst many places and some of my works now belong to private & public collections around the world.
I use vibrant colours and my paintings are often closer to abstraction before you may, perhaps surprisingly, discovers a figure or a symbol. It reflect my love for life, arts and people.
I was told that some works are strangely close to primitive art, with some mysterious and unexpected insight into past and lost civilisations.
Most of my work is acrylic paint, mixed media, inks, watercolours, gouaches, oil pastel, seaweeds and other materials. I sign my work with a quadruple C letter interlinked and intertwined that ressemble a very sophisticated "X".
Enter my universe where the frontier between reality and illusion becomes unclear and you discover another world.
I was chairman of the Arts Club Charitable Trust promoting the Arts for many years. As such I was invited to judge various prestigious awards, mainly in London, such as BITE, The excellence in drawing award and various other awards with judges such as Sir Peter Blake, RA & Philip Mould.
