- Fred Bervoets proves his unique style as an artist through bright and animated etchings
- A selection of the work of all-round artist Fred Bervoets, with a focus on the wild and colourful imagery of his etchings
During the day, painter and graphic artist Fred Bervoets (1942) works almost routinely at his large format etchings. At night, he lets his imagination run wild. The hundreds of drawings, sketches, doodles and paintings done in the margin today fill almost the entire ground floor of his studio home. The one thing they have in common, apart from their maker, is their modest A4 format. The spontaneity of these small works on paper forms the heart of this book, which also includes Bervoets' more monumental etchings since 2013. This one-of-its kind "print room" offers an impressive kaleidoscopic self-portrait of an absolutely unique artist.
