The elegantly refined still life paintings of Belgian painter Stefaan Eyckmans resonate with the traditions of the 17th century “Golden age” Dutch and Flemish still life masters, as well as evoking the sense of stillness and the transformation of the ordinary into the extraordinary exemplified by Chardin.
Taught primarily by his father, painter and commercial artist Louis Eyckmans, Stefaan Eyckmans took inspiration from his norther European predecessors as well as more contemporary artists.
Primarily, however, he takes his inspiration from life, and the clarity of presentation that comes from keenly focused observation.
His website contains three galleries of his work, and you can see more on the websites of galleries in which he is represented (linked below).
