Leon Spilliaert (1881-1946) The Belgian Leon Spilliaert was born in Ostend in 1881 and lived and worked there. He was an exceptional talent who did not wish to align himself to a particular artistic movement but achieved in his solitude an unique and compelling perspective. Spilliaert worked almost entirely on paper, only a small number of canvases have been found, utilising pastel, watercolour, gouache, pencil and crayon. He is renowned for his early symbolist work depicting Ostend at night in black, white and shades of grey. Always adept with colour, however, he began to develop this skill throughout the 1920s reflecting expressionist, surrealist and fauve influences until the majestic trees of Brussels filled the years before his death in 1946. Spilliaert has long been appreciated in Belgium and his work is now beginning to receive the international interest he has long deserved. Olivier Fayt was the curator of the exhibition of Spilliaert at the Casino in Knokke in 2000, which presented 150 works to the general public. He also published a book, with essays in four languages, fully illustrated in colour to accompany this exhibition. And has since assisted museums in France, Switzerland and Japan bringing Spilliaert to the international public. Olivier Fayt Fine Art - OFFA - Gallery is situated in the heart of the Zoute amongst Belgium's most prestigious galleries. The gallery was opened in 2001 by Olivier Fayt, a dealer with ten years of experience in the international art market.
