About Marcel Witte
Dutch artist Marcel Witte is a visual storyteller. He uses his paintings to criticize the contemporary society on a subtile way. By painting nearly life size animals in an empty, monochrome background he strikes a balance between realism and fantasy. Since 2003, Marcel Witte has a successful career as a professional artist. His art is unique in every aspect of the word and follows a logical process. By choosing Hyperrealism, he makes no concessions to current art trends.
Highly technically skilled and with a perfect eye for detail, he paints nearly life size animals against a monochromatic background. By transforming human features into animals, the paintings confront the viewer, but at the same time they create enough distance to put your own human thoughts and deeds into perspective.
The background of the paintings seems to be swept. A single colour deepens the image, intensifies the contrast and creates an emptiness that is at the same time attractive and repelling. Humour, human characteristics and social criticism catch attention. Marcel is a visual storyteller, within the literary tradition of fables.
The paintings of Marcel Witte have national- and international appreciation. In 2014 his painting ‘Together Alone’ has voted as ‘Best of show’ during the ‘American Art Awards 2014’ and his artwork ‘Burning Desire” was chosen fort he cover of the Dreamscapes Six book. Marcel often exhibits in The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Cuba, France, Denmark and Singapore. His paintings are found in private collections all over the world.
Marcell Salome (Re-Art) about Marcel Witte
We work together now for more than 10 years and I still remember that I was directly impressed by his art and at that moment especially his art works ‘Surprise’ and ‘Second-Hand Bag’ which was love at first sight for his art. As a curator of imaginary realism art, I immediately asked him if he wanted to participate in the Dreamscapes books and exhibitions which he did. His works initially seems cheerful, but if you look closely you can see a deeper meaning and a great symbolic message in his paintings. When the world was on fire during 2016/2017 because of all the terrorist attacks, he created the work ‘Burning Desire‘ which at that time for me symbolized how we as humans interact with each other and with nature. Because of that symbolic message it became the cover of the sixth edition of Dreamscapes. It is very clever how he brings the animals to life in his paintings and how he gives them a real soul. We are so pleased that for 25LMTD he gave us the opportunity to make this special edition with us with the artwork ‘Felicity” which stands for luck and for me also for hope in these strange times.
