FRANCOIS COORENS (Bel.)  



François Coorens was born in Belgium in 1971. He pursued his love of art and studied art in Liege and relocated to Brussels in 1999, where he first exhibited his work. To mark the end of the millennium, he completed and delivered one painting per day, for each of the last one hundred days of 1999 on the theme of Goldorak: "The Goldomania", 1 hundred paintings in 1 hundred days. Recollecting his memories, he staged the series called Pirates de Luxe. A set of twelve paintings inspired by Captain Harlock. In 2003, François devoted himself to the female form and produced a series titled Pucelles de Bruxelles series of 16 paintings of women. That was followed by a second series of the Pirates de Luxe, which comprises of seven portraits of famous Brussels DJs. Simultaneously in the same year, he entered the fashion designer phase, teaming up with a French fashion designer. Together they designed stage wear for amongst others, the famous band "Zap Mama" In 2004, he launched the Oscar Goldman collection, which recollects François's perception of the Television series of the 1980s. Inspired by Russ Meyer, from the cinema era of the 1970s, as well as Blaxploitation he produced a new collection called Supervixen. In the spring 2005, he collaborated with an engraver artist called Spacepafpaf, and together they staged an exhibition titled Punk et Majorettes: paintings with common themes including anarchy, cheerleaders, sex pistols, brass bands and Piccadilly Circus. In early 2006, François has been inspired by the "Jungle and Tropical" theme, called Vegetal Coriace series, which reveals animated confrontations between wild flora and deceptive fauna. Inspired by intriguing living creatures, François continued with similar themes, producing even larger painting formats.
