Daems Staf

Staf Daems is a Belgian artist, born in Gestel/Berlaar in 1943. He is a painter, draftsman and graphic artist. He was educated at the Municipal Academy in Lier, at the Municipal Academy in Heist-op-den-Berg and at Sint-Lukas in Brussels. In Japan he took courses in traditional Japanese brush painting, calligraphy and several graphic arts internships (early 1980s). He finds his inspiration in the female nude, among other things. The artist: 'In recent years I have been working in paintings, drawings, etchings and woodcuts on the theme of 'furoshiki', square Japanese wrapping cloths' and 'It is not the packaging that is the subject, but the incidence of light on the refined play of colors of the furoshiki.' (Piron, 2016) He is best known for his portraits, in addition to which he also paints landscapes and makes collages. His style is characterized by impressionist influences. He also actively practices Japanese calligraphy and brush painting (sumi-e). In 2012, calligraphies by Staf Daems were exhibited in gallery Es in Nijlen during the exhibition Painted Poems. Painted Poems was a project that involved painting Japanese calligraphy directly onto the model's back. Shodô, Japanese calligraphy, belongs to the Zen arts, as does Chadô, the tea way. After all, painting a spell, as a message to the guest, is one of the skills of the tea master, another art that Staf Daems masters and practices. In the past he was selected for the Raymond de la Haye Prize in Lier in 1977 with Portrait. Exhibitions, among others, in the town hall in Nijlen in 1994 and 1997 and in the Japanese Embassy in Brussels in 1996. But also abroad: the Netherlands, Spain and Japan. There is a permanent exhibition space attached to his house, always accessible by appointment. In 2001 he received the Culture Prize from the municipality of Berlare. He taught at the Municipal Academies in Herentals and Lier. Staf Daems is mentioned in Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (BT, www.stafdaems.be)
