Gérard Willemenot – The Old Meets The New

Gérard Willemenot - Eclectix art

 

Featured Artist: Gérard Willemenot

Gérard Willemenot is an incredible French artist who seems to be a quite a recluse, we weren’t able to find out much about him in English. However, one look at his art and one groks that he is a master of observation and technique, beautifully rendering in minute  detailed realism. Painting in old school egg tempera, his imagery hearkens back to the mysticism of the Middle Ages with a bit of modern illustrative cartoon style thrown in.  Inspiration sources for Willemenot are the old masters as Bosch, Bruegel and Memling. Classic childhood literature, cabinets of curiosities, social commentary, HP Lovecraft, witty humor and bits of dark fantasy are all part of his milieu.

THE MANKIND PLANET (above) 

“This artwork shows the future of mankind. A galloping demography, overpopulation, people interested only in wars, sex, religion, and consumption. Marvelous prospects!… Are we not already there…?”
