Yann Schuyers (1954, Oss, Netherlands) discovered the artist in himself early on in life. As a young child, he already provided hand-drawn illustrations for the school newspaper. With his creative nature, Yann also took an interest in photography and made sculptures in aerated concrete and even bones of cows.
Throughout the years, Yann has immersed himself in a multitude of creative arts that let him play with shape and imagination. Full of interest and enthusiasm, he has been involved in photography and screen printing, drawing with acrylic paint and pencil, digital art and designing gardens and furniture.
As his taste and interests evolved over the years, so did his work. Yann draws inspiration from a wide range of predecessors, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt van Rijn, and at the same time, he is triggered by contemporaries.
Yann’s mixed contemporary techniques (New Media Art) on linen has been inspired by the size and technique of artists like Lita Cabellut, Louis Treserras and others.
All his works are fascinating in their size and beauty, they are unique works of art on canvas. He uses acrylic paint, markers, ink, oil paint pencils, pastilles, gel and varnish in combination with airbrush, pencil, stencil, splatter and glazing techniques.
A recurring theme in Yann’s art is the beauty of the female body.
“Womankind is the base of our existence. She carries beauty and attraction in all her shapes. Only she can continue to captivate me and be an inexhaustible source of inspiration to me” – Yann Schuyers
Yann also finds a lot of inspiration for new works of art in mythology, fashion, design, architecture, travel and music.
