Meet the Artist Behind These Beautiful Floral Still Life Art Decals - Pieter Wagemans
Pieter Wagemans is an award winning Belgian illustrator, graphic artist and painter who has had a love of art since childhood. Crediting his father for his natural born gift, Pieter was a promising young artist and attended the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp starting at the age of 15. His still life paintings are now mainly of floral compositions painted from his studio in Antwerp, Belgium. Pieter’s work is strongly influenced by his study of artists such as David de Heem Willem Heda and Rachael Ruys and he takes pride in painting his flowers with old world techniques.
His passion for capturing the ever changing flower on canvas with his paintbrush shines through his work and has made his art a beautiful addition to our collection of wall decals. For anyone with a love of fine art floral paintings, who can’t hang art on their walls for whatever reason, Pieter’s art in the form of fabric wall decals are a perfect solution. You can choose from such life like art as Roses, showing romantic pink roses in a white porcelain pitcher or Silence, a beautiful arrangement of red and yellow and white tulips in a clear glass vase. These fine floral art decals would look stunning in any home or office. Read more about the artist below and then check out the Pieter Wagemans Collection of wall decals available on our site.
