Lieve Ophalvens is a Belgian painter with Brazilian origins. This double culture is visible in all aspects of her art. Her dreamlike creations destruct and restructure the female anatomy in her own way. What at first glance may seem like a complicated and sometimes somber universe, gradually reveals a colorful world with round and happy shapes. Her paintings hesitate between the abstract and the figurative and give us this impression of traveling in a dream world. The body is captured in close-up and arranged in such a way that it eventually decomposes towards the abstraction. Resident artist of Monteoliveto Gallery from 10 years, she is fully represented from 2019 in all art events of the gallery.
