The artist Luc Tuymans
Born 1958, Mortsel, Belgium.
Lives and works in Antwerp.

Style and technique of the artist: Painting,

“My paintings are not smack in your face, but there’s a history of violence not portrayed, but constantly there, at different levels: mutilation, disappearance, not showing things. Violence creates many more images than happiness will ever be able to there’s an entanglement with so many more people. A feeling for the beautiful is solitary. Happiness takes about 30 seconds.”
