FRANS VERSCHUREN

I was born in the south of the Netherlands where the heart of the textile industry is. Further south is Maastricht where I went to study fashion design at the Academy of Arts. My first job took me even further south, to Italy, to work for a fashion company in Milan. My designs are often big prints for interior that I mostly make by hand. The start is the material, paint and ink on handmade paper. I use big Japanese brushes which give a lot of effect. The way colors mix or contrast often makes for rich and layered designs. My motives are mostly abstract or simple flowers and leaves and come second to the handwriting. Further inspiration comes from calligraphy, action painting and crafts like pottery. More recently I began to use the pictures I take on my trips across the globe as starting point for designs in Photoshop.


 

Tigermarble

Sometimes chance helps you while designing.
This design was originally a sheet of rice paper that I tried to paint an even color to use as a background. When the paper dried up it had a sort of tiger skin stripes on it. What seemed like a mistake was a quite wonderful effect that I turned into a mirrored structure, half way between tiger skin and damask.

The work of action painters has always been really inspiring to me. I particularly like the effect of the colorful inks that blend during the painting and retain the effect of the dynamics of the making process.

Paint Flowers

One of my big loves is asian calligraphy. The use of japanees brush and ink is one of the most direct and rich expressions. You need to do very little to achieve a lot. Here the flower shapes were first bleached on the colored rice paper and overpainted with dark blue ink.
