Koen Lybaert is a Belgian artist active in different art fields. He is mainly known for his musical career as Ontayso and Starfish Pool and for his photographic and design work for his own label u-cover records. On we get to know his work in the field of abstract painting. His paintings are mainly inspired by minimal forms and desolate landscapes. His current work consists of an abstract series; each work from a different approach and mood. On some abstracts Lybaert has carefully layered oil painting on canvases, creating a dense mixture of overlapping colours and shapes. The graduations of tone are quite subtle, slowly deepening and fading before our eyes. Like an imaginary world of coloured fields with mystic and dreamy landscapes. Others are more expressive abstracts partly based on action painting with gloss enamel paint. Resulting in a joyful play of lines and drops with a spontaneously mixes of colour. Mostly combinate with oil paint so lines and colours fade away in the background while others appear at front. The result is an abstract chaos or an imaginary land- or cityscape.
