Happy 1.000.055th #ARTsBirthday2018
Wishing all artists and creatives a happy birthday with their passions

On this international art’s birthday we celebrate the arts and the artists for their creativity and imaging their passions and inspirations through their artworks and art performance for everyone to enjoy and enthused by.

It was French Fluxus artist Robert Filliou who introduced this annual event in 1963.
He suggested that 1,000,000 years ago, there was no art. But one day, on the 17th of January to be precise, Art was born. According to Filliou, it happened when someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water. Modest beginnings, but in the meantime it has become an annual international event.

Filliou proposed a public holiday to celebrate the presence of art in our lives. In recent years, the idea has been taken up by a loose network of artists and friends around the world. Each year the Eternal Network evolves to include new partners - working with the ideas of exchange and telecommunications-art.

with his artworks on
#cinQarthlon – 3. at the waterfront
January 5-21, 2017

Robert Biesemans has a sporty heart for photography and an irresistible urge to convince you of its beauty.
Create space for art, culture and sport. See beauty in things that people have put a lot of effort and energy into. Feel that you change for a moment and you can no longer control your emotions for a painting, a piece of music, a hug, a spontaneous action ... a beautiful picture.

As a "Qualified European Photographer" with a well-equipped photography studio for portrait, nude and model sessions, music and sporting events, Robert gives numerous courses and workshops in photography and lectures and question evenings for photo clubs and private individuals (professionals and hobbyists).

Robert has won numerous national and international awards with his dynamic photos.
For him, paintings by old masters are the perfect example for composition, use of light, colours, ... an age-old knowledge for application in modern photography.

Personality of the art photographer counts in the representation of his work. Robert brings photography in an original and with an innovative touch.
His slogan: If simplicity may adorn

#cinQarthlon – Antwerp artists bring European destinations
#popUPARTspace by #ARTconnectsLIFE
with her artworks on
=cinQarthlon – 3. at the waterfront
January 5-21, 2017

Geertje Van Eylen is a visual artist from Kapellen (North Antwerp) with great enthusiasm and is also part of the singing ensemble 'Badkamer Koor'.
She brings landscapes, city views, flowers and animals on canvas, watercolor and drawings from the Antwerp area as well as many momentum shots during her holiday trips in Belgium and Europe.

Her preference is for aquarel because this is a technique that requires control and spontaneity at the same time. You try to reflect the play of light and shadow as pure as possible, water and paint sometimes react unpredictably, it never gets dull.

Followed courses: all techniques from pencil to oil paint with various teachers, such as Frank-Ivo Van Damme, Johan Janssens, Jef Van Campen, Hannelore Uchner and Xavier Swolfs.

Participation in various group exhibitions: Oude Pastorij Kapellen, Kreatief Kalmthout, IKIM (Ravenhof) Stabroek and selections for the #RotaryBrasschaat aquarel exhibition.
