DISCOVER EDDY STEVENS
Eddy Stevens (1965) may be considered as one of the most gifted painters of contemporary realism. This virtuoso artist is since a young age doing a search for the rendering of the inner man. In the meantime we can conclude that his work has grown to great heights. Over the years, his style and technique are increasingly sophisticated, deeper and more balanced. The focus of his work has shifted from beauty to displaying the essence.
His paintings are like a book that tells the story of timeless emotions and human interaction. Apart from the technical perfection, his visual language is so poetic and narrative that the essence is only revealed to the engaged spectator. From his isolation as a painter Eddy Stevens sees the human inner. In an almost mythical way he approaches feelings like desire and commitment to depict them with a sober and timeless symbolism on canvas. Eddy Stevens is a sensitive person, a great thinker and above all a gifted painter who knows how to capture the subtlety and complexity of human beings for eternity.
Eddy Stevens studied at the Art Academy St. Niklaas, Belgium.
