Born in Paris, Emmanuel Beyens is a Franco-Belgian artist based in Brussels.
He executes both unusual contemporary paintings called "Crazy Purple series" and commissioned classical portraits; two very different styles for the same painter. What’s the link? The human figure!
The aesthetic research is very present in his work. The quality of implementation aims to make each painting a unique and rare work. In 2011, Emmanuel Beyens was awarded 1st Prize at the International Portrait Fair in France (Foire Internationale du Portrait).
The "Crazy Purple collection" is a series of paintings with a hard-hitting style. In this series, the artist gives free rein to his creativity through an ultra pop and realistic style. The aim of this collection is to communicate strong messages and emotions with maximum impact.
