Laurent Reypens is a Belgian artist who was born in Westerlo in 1954. He is a painter. Education at the Academy in Mechelen (1975-1978) and at the National Higher Institute in Antwerp (1987-1981). Laureate of the Jules Bernaerts Prize in Mechelen in 1976, the Piet Van Engelen Prize in Antwerp in 1979, the Prize of the city of Poperinge in 1983, the Hasselt youth prize in 1984. He finds inspiration in the simple things around him. Works in a poetic and aesthetic way, somewhat with the precision of the hyperrealists and often refers in his works to things like cups, bowls, saucers, vases, and this in a luminous, pure white color against a very sensitive background. From the press: “L.R. paints peace and asceticism and he does this almost monochrome (white on white). He builds up an intimate world with a minimum of material and reproduces it in static compositions. Soft, often translucent in color, dream shapes grow from near-white backgrounds; meditative still lifes and other creations. ”Mentioned in BAS II and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists.
