Jean-Pierre Lorand, Belgium



Jean-Pierre Lorand was born in Valenciennes but lives in Brussels, where he studied
at the "St Luc Art Institute"

He works in publicity as a creative designer, and describes himself as a self-taught painter.
He developed a slightly candid artistic expression, which presents a fine stroke and
great quality, along with an uncommon pictorial rigor.

Trough his art, Jean-Pierre Lorand shares with us simple stories, full of freshness, luminosity and poetry. His paintings structure themselves on their own compositions, which transport us to the time and place where each scene is generated.

Since 1977 he has been frequently exhibiting in galleries and cultural events in Belgium and many other European countries, as well as in the USA and Japan. We also highlight his participation in "Benezit Grund" exhibition as well the philatelic works he developed for the Belgium Postal Services.
