Schoenaerts Julien

Julien Schoenaerts was a Belgian artist born in 1925 in Eigenbilzen and died in 2006 in Antwerp. He was a painter, draftsman, graphic artist, but he mainly became known as an actor. The painter Bérénice De Vos was his first wife. Theater education at the Studio Herman Teirlinck in Antwerp. Was associated with the Koninklijke Nederlandse Schouwburg (KNS) in Antwerp from 1951, then moved to the Netherlands for some time and after his return in 1968 participated with the dramatic company of the BRT. Started a little later with his own Ringtheater in Antwerp and was then able to work at the Arcade Theater in Ghent. Played in more than forty films, including, The Farewell (1966), De Leeuw van Vlaanderen (1984) and Daens (1992). Learned the etching techniques from Omar Van Meervelde. From the 1970s onwards, he struggled with psychological problems and towards the end of his life devoted himself fully to his old passions: drawing, etching and painting. Found his inspiration as a visual artist in man and creation. From the press: "His etchings come across as delicate, brittle, almost childlike." (2001) Preserved his drawings and poems in bound notebooks. Exhibited a.o. in the cultural center in Strombeek-Bever in 2002.
