Johan Messely ~ The Secret Gardens

Johan Messely, 1927 ~ The Secret Gardens. (Belgian painter). Johan Messely grew up in the artistic world of his father Paul Messely, also a painter, who served as his great example and motivation. After his studies into technical engineering and later photography, Johan settled as a proffessional photographer in Menen, Belgium, but eventually decided to turn painting from being just a hobby into his main occupation.

Johan Messely creates colourful oil on canvas, featuring typical scenes from the Provence region. It‘s hard not wanting to nestle in and take in the abundance of sun, shadow, calm and peace that each of his paintings emits. The play of light and dark is the main ingredient for his photographic works when depicting: the southern light, the fresh nature, flowery pergolas, gardens overwhelmed with sunlight and comfy terraces. Time after time, Johan seeks out refreshing ideas and unique compositions for his next painting. Each of his works acts like a window through which the sun enters in your own home.
