Al Freno

There is always a patch of blue sky for whoever wants it and behind every cloud hides the sky.

Al Freno is a Belgian artist from Cambrai. He loved drawing as a child. As a teenager, he remembers being fascinated by the great masters such as Dali and Picasso. It was only natural that he enrols at the Dunkirk Fine Arts School where he learnt to master light and shade techniques and perspectives. Al Freno left art behind for twenty-odd years when he spent a lot of time travelling. He visited countless countries and fell in love with blue, the sea, heavenly villas and pools that still appear in his pieces.

The artist exclusively works with oil on canvas that he blends with liquin. Al Freno's blue tones bring travel and adventure to mind. They're inspired by the fabulous scenery he experienced on his travels and are reminiscent of Hockney and Hopper's artwork. Al Freno's minimalist pieces share what's in his heart and take audiences on a journey where they dive into his canvases. He depicts pools, villas, sea resorts and idyllic landscapes where the water or sea are a signature feature.
