LEO WESEL

Born in 1955 in Roosendaal, The Netherlands. Living and working in Ventimiglia, Italy since 1991.

After studying at the Arts Academy of the Hague, Leo Wesel was trained and inspired by two leading expressionist artists: Wil Bouthoorn and Wim Schütz. The French painter Serge Hélénon, the French-Italian artist Bernhard Damiano and, lately, the Hungarian constructivist Tamàs Konok have influenced and stimulated the Leo Wesel's artworks.
