With ‘I wish I knew how it feels to be free’ as his motto, Geert Verbruggen has been showering the world with his vibrant paintings for many years now.
Like the artist himself, they are bold and outspoken. Why compromise? Often very colourful, they capture your attention right away.
Geert creates powerful images that verge on abstraction and trigger your imagination.
Is it a bird?
Is it a plane?
No, it’s simply the artist’s thoughts and feelings poured onto paper and canvas for us to enjoy. Geert is way more free than he thinks.
