Dorus BREKELMANS has a very personal style. His outspoken figurative painting is realistic with an impressionistic tip. The paint is applied spontaneously and often expressive with a paintbrush or a palette knife. His subjects are quite varied, never static, and humans are omnipresent.
Dorus Brekelmans was born in Waalwijk (Netherlands) in 1972. After a three year (1991-1994) study in advertising drawing at the Municipal Institute of Decorative Arts and Crafts in Antwerp, he continued his training in applied graphics and illustration at the Carolus Magnus University of Antwerp (1994-1998). Since, Dorus regularly participates as independent illustrator and painter, in exhibitions in the Netherlands, where he is also represented by a number of distinguished galleries.
