Violence, wild eroticism, dark atmosphere characterize the artwork of Jean-Claude Claeys. Hyperrealistic images in China ink perfectly fit the black&white imagery of postwar movies.
Fine drawings, perfect sense of scene.
Jean-Pierre Tamine: "Claeys' illustrations and comic strips first and foremost reflect the artist's fascinations, things that haunt him, his inner world."
Women are always beautiful - for Claeys, beauty and death are inseparable.
Jean-Claude Claeys, born in 1951, is the author of numerous book covers, comic strips and illustrations. His artwork is both brutal and elegant. Pulp de Luxe, Exquisite Noir.
