EDITOR: Have you attended art school?
MARC: Yes, I attended art school in Eeklo. I can begin Restoration work for the Palace from the King in Brussel. When I worked there, I had contact with Kunstpatrinonium, Brussel. There I was referred to private school for wood, marble and tromploeill painting. I received special awards for my work there.
EDITOR: What Have you made at the palace?
MARC: I work to restore the palace using polychrome, marble painting, restoring old paintings, restoring ceilings, using gold leaf I worked with great artists from all over the world to complete this project.
I also worked for the King to paint his private residence.
EDITOR: What is the difference between the technique and style used in your paintings and the restoration work?
MARC: Painting on canvas and painting in a building are two different techniques. As a painter I work from my own ideas. No one can say they are an artist because they have graduated art school. It is a lifestyle. There are many ups and downs; many people criticize your work.
When as an artist I am called upon to do restoration, I learned every different technique. I then sometimes incorporate those techniques into my paintings, resulting in my own style of art.
