Man is the central theme in his paintings in which symbolism, expression and color add a particularly warmth. The striking use of light and unique color palette are captivating. The old masters are the examples and he escapes from the matte reality by bringing dream and mystery to the forefront. The cycle ‘Men in the Mirror’, painted in his widely known, layered technique and glacis, brings a series of works inspired by an old master: REMBRANDT. Graba’ starts from a particular Rembrandt painting replacing the original character by a person that made an impression on him. These works are on display in ‘view boxes’ in Knokke (where Graba’ started many years ago) after which they will travel to Amsterdam, Venice, Paris, London.....

‘Men in the Mirror’ is exhibited opposite the The Grand Casino Zeedijk-Albertstrand Knokke-Heist. ‘A Retrospective’ can be seen in the Grand Casino and in its restaurant ‘Mascotte’ (only open for diner). Casino-bar is open every day from 11h. Zeedijk-Albertstrand Knokke-Heist.

'MEN IN THE MIRROR' & ‘A RETROSPECTIVE’

A Retrospective 2017-2018

graba retrospective 2017

The aim of the exhibition that accompanies the NEW GRABA’ SITE, is to reveal the full extent and depth of GRABA’S achievements and to clarify his identity as a modern artist.

The identity of any great artist, needs to be reexamined constantly: not only because each new generation will discover a somewhat different artist from the generation before, but also because such reexamination will help to check the spread of myths and generalizations that shield us from the complexities of a great artist's work.

The more than four hundred works featured in the GRABA’ online gallery, offer a more comprehensive and balanced overview of his art than ever before.

We felt it was essential that GRABA’s art should be experienced as a whole. The planned “retrospective” exhibitions aim to reveal some previously neglected aspects of his oeuvre and its evolvement.

The creation of this project required the involvement of a renowned Gallery.
