ERIC DE BECKER
Born in Brussels on October 29, 1962. Education in Fine Arts and Advertising. Highly influenced by COBRA, Alechinsky, de Kooning, Cocteau, Kline, Hartung, Baselitz, Twombly and Richter. The work originates from the application of the dialectic method. An argument of resolving the tension between chaos and structure in everyday life. Eric is a strong follower of the "Tachism" movement (Art Informel-intuitive painting), the European answer to the American Action Painting of the 40's and 50's. He lives and works with wife and daughter in the Antwerp area, Belgium.
