Born in Brussels in 1947
Studied drawing and printmaking at the Ecole d'Art de la Cambre, specialising in the techniques of engraving on copper (burin engraving, drypoint and mezzotint) and wood engraving.
With a fine technique, he makes prints that are a product of his teeming imagination, creating a world rich in detail, not without humour, a little disturbing, both ancient and futuristic.
Jean Coulon's work has been exhibited both in Belgium and abroad.
The work in detail
In this exhibition, you can bring up on screen small details of this world, enabling you to peer in at windows, enter gardens, walk down the crowded streets of the town. Or you can look at the whole picture, to appreciate the balance, the harmony and the strangeness.
