Johan Van Mullem: Movements of the Soul.
2nd November 2012 – 24 November 2012.
Andipa Gallery, 162 Walton Street, Knightsbridge, London SW3 2JL.
Van Mullem who originally trained as architect is having his first solo exhibition in London. Entitled Movements of the Soul, Van Mullem depicts human faces in a rousing ephemeral manner. The Belgian figurative painter purposes to explore emotion, vision and perception over actual focus on resemblance.
His background and experience informs his work. His nomadic childhood in Congo and across Europe (Van Mullen was born in Congo to a diplomat father) has affected his use of light but also has contributed to the introspective nature of his work.
