Stephane  Cruz was born and raised in Belgium, where he graduated in Fine Arts with Distinction.  Stephane is a member of the Armory center and the Photographic centre at West Palm beach. He considers himself an abstract expressionist. He tells The Rickie Report, “I favor strong colors and likes to paint spontaneous decorative in an innocent form”.

 

 

 

 


Stephane goes on to explain, ” I am an expressive painter, my paintings are influenced by decorative children’s drawings.  Birds, cats…and distorted human figures play a main role in my work. I paint intuitive of everyday things.  I mainly use bright colors: white, red, blue, yellow and black whilst using violent brush strokes”.

 

 

 

 

 

“Being strongly influenced by the “ Cobra Artist’ , I suppose being a Belgian and having studied at the Academy of Fine Arts.  I use mostly Sennelier acrylic and oil paints as I like the body and the saturated pigments.  I also use encaustic medium. To quote Karel Appel “ Through play we renew contact with childhood – my art is childlike”.

 

 

 

 

 

CoBrA was a European avant grade movement active from 1948 until 1951. The name was formed by Karel Appel, Constant, Corneille, Christian Dotriment, Asger Jorn and Joseph Noiret from the initials of the members’ home cities : Copenhagen ( Co) , Brussels (Br) , Amsterdam (A ) .

 

 

 

 

Stephane resides in Wellington Florida, where he has a painting and clay studio and spends most of his time creating new projects.
