ReiNarDus is a Dutch contemporary painter based in Belgium. He graduated as a graphic designer but painting has always been his first love. As a child it all started with the simple lines and bright colours that he found in comic books. Over the years, his art has evolved from simple cartoonlike drawings to a more realistic style. These days, his interest lies primarily in portraying the human figure with the emphasis on color and the substance of the paint itself. in 1871 Arthur Rimbaud wrote ‘Je est un autre’. We are born as a white blank canvas where colours grow as we slowly start interacting with the people around us. These interactions and relationships gradually create an identity. Who am I ? Which colours determine me? ReiNarDus searches for his own colours through what he discovers while painting the others`. Take a look at his work and you might find a piece of yourself!
I wonder what he might be dreaming of? Maybe about becoming an astronaut or a painter. Or maybe he can still live in the now and enjoys his life without thinking in blacks and whites. :-)
