- Lives and works: Geel, Belgium.
Koen Lybaert is a contemporary art painter, born 1965 in Wilrijk, Belgium. He creates mostly abstract and landscape oil paintings. For this he carefully layered colors on canvas or paper. He creates a dense, subtle and slowly deepening mixture of overlapping colors and shapes. His work is an abstract and unique view of the nature around him. Woods, lakes, mountains, sea and desolate landscapes are his main inspiration. During nighttime he changes from oil to watercolors. From floating ambient minded abstracts to imaginary landscapes of places at the end of the world. His contemporary landscape oil paintings are based on his own photographs that are taken during his daily walks or holidays. These photographs are also part of his serie of overpainted photographs. Sold to private collector worldwide, mainly in the USA, Germany, Belgium and the UK.
