I have to admit that I am not usually a great fan of abstract art. It simply doesn’t talk or mean anything to me. So when I discovered Koen Lybaert’s work, it was not only a discovery in terms of “oh this is a great artist” but it also made me realize that I could actually like abstract art.
Koen Lybaert is a Belgian painter who paints mainly abstract and landscapes. He uses different medias and tools, like photography, watercolours, oil paintings etc., to create these moods. I also find that even his abstract paintings are very alike to the natural world. They all remind me of forests, lake, mountains. Refreshing!
