Sylvain Serneels

Sylvain is a quirky painter and draughtsman at Studio Borgerstein since 2009. However, he has been drawing and painting for much longer. With his fingers, he scans the contours of his subject until he has fully absorbed the image and the mimicry. While humming, his characters appear on the page. His trademark are oriental-looking individuals embellished by dashes or dots. These isolated figures have a strange, mysterious aura with their large heads that often completely fill the sheet.

In recent years, Sylvain prefers to work with posca markers to outline the portrait he wants to portray. With the same pens, he sets down a pattern of dashes. Sometimes he works with ecoline to give the background color. Sylvain visibly enjoys painting and the interest in his work.
