Sander Belmans

Merging Realities: Surrealism and Figurative Art in Harmonious Coexistence

Sander Belmans writes about his work: 

I'm never quite sure about what my work means, I love what other people make of it, it often surprises me. 

My work is almost always surreal, but that's the only common denominator I guess. 

My style, technique and subject matter switches a lot, and I often combine certain techniques in one work, to get to the point I want the work to go. I

think my work is quite kitsch, it's never abstract. 

I really love flashy colours and strong contrasts but I sometimes force myself to choose colour combinations that are alien to me, to see where that gets me. 

I have a background in graphic design and illustration and it really shows in my work. 

I think I sometimes give myself fictional children's book cover assignments, without actually imagining a real story to go with that cover.
