The works by this artist, Victor Francois Makau, are as energetic as the painter himself always was. He worked vividly, it tempered his emotions and it kept him young.
Daily (sometimes at night) he could be found in his studio in the attic. He painted fresh, fast and spontaneously and was inspired when he headed to the supermarket, when his granddaughter hopped in or when the flowers opened to the bushes in the garden.
His collection consists of watercolours, oil paint, gouaches and sketches. He smoked a cigarette, drank a cup of tea and started painting. Through his works, he wanted to show that he lived on earth.
While maintaining style, he switched effortlessly between abstract and figurative, with the pervasive lining always recognisable: fast, aptly, enthusiastic and driven. His works are expressive, abstract and sometimes almost leaning towards fauvism.
This beautiful work of art comes from the heirs of the artist.
