ABOUT THE ARTIST
Apart from some months at the Antwerp academy, Walter has no formal training in art or painting.
In his earlier career he worked as a strategist in marketing communications and advertising. Even up to today he works as an independent brand strategy consultant. But more and more this is being taken over by this other passion of him : oil painting.
He loves the lively plasticity of oil paint. With each brushstroke he pushes and pulls the colors – almost like sculpting – into shapes with expression.
His recent body of work deals with interpersonal relations.
Happiness and sorrow, anger and angst, love and rebellion - there are enough colors in life to be inspired by in his paintings.
