An interview with Stef De Brabander – "Observing art or listening to art, in its broadest form..."

“Observing art or listening to art, in its broadest form, as well as experiencing and investigating nature are my biggest sources of inspiration for creation.”

Stef De Brabander was born in Lüdenscheid, Germany, in 1970. He studied Liberal Arts in Ghent, KASK (1991-1995). Stef De Brabander never starts with a blank canvas, this is the reason why he often uses recycled materials as a base. He is an artist who carefully thinks about whether an artwork is finished or not. As a painter, he is the translator of an amusing anecdote in search of an imperfection. He covers and discovers with color, resulting in playful colorful artworks.
