ARTIST

WALTER DOLPHYN

Born in Antwerp in 1963, Walter Dolphyn grew up in an artistic milieu. His father Willem, grandfather Victor, the esteemed artist and former professor at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Arts, and his great-uncle Denis were all painters, each with their own distinctive styles.

Following in his father’s footsteps, Walter chose to pursue the art of still life painting, but with a focus on collectable items: toys, figurines, gadgets and miniatures, all vividly rendered with exquisite painterly precision.

The art of narrative is at the heart of Walter’s practice. Jokingly self-styled as the Hieronymous Bosch of his age, above all Walter aims to tell stories. Inspired by the toys or figures themselves or by an everyday observation, he then directs the protagonists, sometimes solitary, sometimes in various surreal combinations, often poised mid-action, or crowded into vitrines and onto shelves. His paintings are intricately detailed and strive to render the qualities of different materials.
