PAINTER Christel Van Hemelrijck
Christel uses oil painting to present us her lyric expressionism visions. She is a self-taught artist. She has had a career as an executive producer in television before she discovered art as a way of expressing herself.
The island of Crete remains a major source of inspiration, along with her travel experiences. Christel has lived in Crete during the 90s and she still spends a lot of time there.
Her emotions are expressed through the language of bold colours, with laconic, solid composition and delicate texture mainly on large canvasses. Every painting is a story.
Soon after starting out in 2017 she has had several exhibitions in Belgium. Lately Christel had the opportunity to present her work in Lisbon, Amsterdam, London, Venice, Madrid and Zurich.
