Since 2003, Marcel Witte has a successful career as a professional artist creating paintings that are unique in every aspect. Choosing Hyperrealism, he nevertheless makes no concessions to other current art trends. Highly technically-skilled and with a perfect eye for detail, Witte paints life-size animals against monochromatic backgrounds. By implementing human features to these animals, the paintings confront and challenge the viewer – but at the same time the whimsy creates a comfortable, idyllic perspective. The single-colored backgrounds deepen the images, intensifying the contrast and creating an emptiness that is at the same time attractive and repelling. Humor, human characteristics and social criticism have always caught the public’s attention, and this multi award-winning artist in The Netherlands is a much sought-after visual storyteller within the literary tradition of fables.
