Marcel Witte



Niederlande (Nederland)

Kunstart: Malerei
Technik: Acryl
Stil: Realismus


Vita / Lebenslauf:
The artwork of Marcel Witte is balancing at the border between realism and fantasy. Using nature as source of inspiration, he paints detailed animal figures against one background colour. The composition is never a coincidence, but is always meant to draw attention to the story behind the work. The background colour choice can harmonize with the animal, can be used as a symbol or just to create beautiful
contrast. Emptiness is a mode of perception, a way of looking that ensures that a minimum distance is created between the spectator and the work of art.
To start the painting process, Marcel use a lot of pictures. These examples are used to make the animals as realistic as possible. He studies the movement of the animal, the attitude, the look in the eyes, the structure of the fur and the specific character to let the animals live throughout the painting. You simply want to hug the animal or hold it in your hands. To intensify this feeling, he paints the animals nearly life size. Although the majority of his work is a result of his own creative ideas, he sometimes works under order. But still, he has to have his own vision on the ordered painting. So he can translate the wanted animal into a picture that fits perfect into the collection.

PUBLICATIONS

- The Kunstagenda (Marlou Kursten Kunst bemiddeling) is a well- designed desk organizer, illustrated by 13 artists. In the eight edition (2005), four of my paintings are included.
- Flemish writer Annelies Verbeke won several famous literary prices. My painting Koorddanser (rope- dancer) decorates the cover of her second book Reus (2006).
- When the moon winks (2006) is the newest record of the Belgian band Maxon Blewitt. The CD cover shows my painting Roodborstje en de boze wolf . On their website www.maxonblewitt.com, you can read why the members of the band chose this image and how the cooperation first started. (Enter NEWS on their site and go to feb. 8 2006)
- DIER EN ARTS is a professional illustrated magazine, created to update veterinary surgeons. Besides the practically- oriented information, they focus each edition on an animal artist. The august/September edition 2006 contains an article about my work. The cover is decorated with my painting King.
- In the trilingual art book for children 'IK ZAG TWEE BEREN, J'AI VU DEUX OURS, IKI AYI GORMUSTUM' (2007)', 16 of my paintings are shown. The pictures are combined with tales of Gerlinde Gilissen, which invite the young reader to see more in the art work. This book is in the first place an attractive book for children, but offers also chances for language stimulation, reading promotion and art education. More info www.ikzagtweeberen.com
