Chromatic strokesMultimedia artist, Koen Lybaert, approaches each medium in a particular way. From photography, to watercolor and oil painting, each of them is characterized by a different process.

Blues and greens are often recurrent in his works, but each art piece is an open experiment to discover new nuances by mixing the colors.
