About Jean - Pierre Decort

Jean- Pierre DECORT (Painter, Photographer) Artist, Born in Lot, Belgium, now living in Aalst.

Contact : jpdecort@hotmail.com

I've been a painter and photographer all my life.
After my professional career as a Finance Manager / Controller and Board Member, I became a full time Artist.

My paintings are mainly abstract, with references towards cubism and Op-Art.
Most of my geometric paintings are inspired by the art of Paul Van Hoeydonck and the imaginary world created by Panamarenko.

The Expressionist Abstracts are inspired by G.Richter, and Nature.


Some of my paintings are in private collections in Belgium, Canada, France, The U.K. and The U.S.A.

My art has been described as: By simplifying the forms, he acquires a refined harmonious unity.

Education
