OVER DE KUNSTENAAR / ABOUT THE ARTIST


Franciscus' works present an exhibition highlighting modern art mostly inspired by classical European paintings and sculptures often with a biblical background. The artist’s sources of inspiration include pieces by painters like Hendrick ter Brugghen, Caravaggio and Bronzino. He combines or re-arranges compositions of old masters depicting biblical stories in an up-to-date and idiosyncratic fashion. His themes are put in a modern context in an intelligent way, resulting in humorous and appealing art that can sometimes shock the viewer as well. Franciscus' artwork is in no case meant to insult but allways tries to create space for a broader view on human kind.
