Following a 25+ years international corporate career I have the privilege to translate my passion for art in a successful business concept.

Since childhood surrounded by Cobra, Zero and Art Povera artworks I had as a student no choice but to prefer qualitative graphic art to vinyl and posters. As collector of post-war Belgian art I did my utmost to stay in touch with the contemporary forms of art expression and make sense of them.

Professionally I travelled the world and visited headquarters of multi-nationals and SMEs alike. Most of the time I was greeted with posters of in-house product advertisement or pictures of plants and anniversaries. But I often enjoyed doing business with the small minority of companies offering their employees, customers and suppliers the pleasure of welcoming them with art.

Via artsmart I hope to enthuse my customers to go for art and that extra dimension in your living- and working space.
