Herbert Staljanssens illustrator of a parallel world
I am a Belgian artist. Architect by training and art teacher. I make illustrations to reflect my inner world. You will always find our family with dog depicted in it. In that sense, they are illustrations of my parallel inner world. The titles regularly refer to this moment. The only time this can happen.
While drawing, I cultivate not-knowing. Out of curiosity, I am willing to accept the instability. Sometimes I start from something concrete and sometimes straight from the heart. But I don’t know in advance where I will end up. In the free association during the creation, I become acquainted with changeability. A series of surrealistic fantasy drawings is the result.
In short, a series of drawings from the point of view of stopping and looking. And to be present at the circle of life of creation and passing.
The path is now being created. It does not exist yet and is disappearing behind us. The path is the goal. ~ @Herbert Staljanssens
