Many unique items that are offered on Whoppah have a special story. Last time we highlighted the pink pink ribbon wooden sideboard. We have now met Bart Stillekens, from B-Art.
B-art is young, creative, pioneering and has an entrepreneurial spirit. From an early age he was already making beautiful drawings. A few years later he shifted his art from paper to canvas and sculptures.
B-art noted that his work appealed to people very quickly and his first artworks got sold very quickly. The first pieces were sold to acquaintances and half a year later, B-art organised his own first solo exhibition. He now works with high-quality galleries, showrooms and interior designers. But he also works on assignment.
“I have my own original artistic way of working. I find it difficult to commit to just one style. Why just use 1 style when there are endless beautiful possibilities. I work on canvas, wood, mdf, copper and polystone with products such as high-quality acrylic paint, montana graffiti, markers, stickers, and prints. I also like to work with sustainable products such as epoxy, 24-carat gold and / or silver leaves, diamond dust, and lacquers. ”
Since the end of 2018, B-art has devoted its time mainly to developing unique 1/1 paintings. His new collection contains many new abstract artworks. By experimenting with many new techniques, B-art creates a surprising and unique effect.
