Just outside of Brussels in the heart of Rhode-Saint-Genèse, among the quaint European houses and large manicured gardens, is where artist Johan Van Mullem is creating artworks of an otherworldly nature. Believing that a detail can provoke a storm, the Belgian artist has been redefining notions of portraiture with his enigmatic renderings for over fifty years. Inspired by the collective consciousness that survives from generation to generation, Van Mullem’s artwork invites you to gain a deeper understanding of the human consciousness. Using African and European traditions, his work has been likened to that of Goya, Rembrandt and Francis Bacon.
Join the artist in his private residence and studio for lunch and an unforgettable afternoon of art, conversation and discovery. Replete with two nights’ accommodation and the luxurious Hotel Manos Premier, private dining reservations at Le Chalet de la Forêt and private transfers to and from the artist residence, this experience is for those looking to discover a new way of seeing and engaging with both art and artist.
