Stefaan Rits - Intro
“The relationship between humans and animals”, that is the theme of this artist’s recent work. He was inspired by the work he did as a zookeeper in the winter of 2016-2017, in a Sanctuary for abused and neglected animals. His heart was moved when he realized how humanity has become alienated from nature and they don’t know what they’re missing, the lost connection between humans, animals and nature.
With his work, he wants to touch people’s heart by showing them what the world could look like when all humans would live in harmony with animals and nature…
Drawing or painting domestic animals on commission, also called “animal portraits”, is one of the services Stefaan Rits is known for. His knowledge about anatomy and his skills makes his work very expressive, as if it has a soul.
