R. Van Langenhove (Born 26th June 1962, Wetteren) is a Belgian painter of portraits, nudes and contemporary scenes. His work is represented in art collections in Belgium, the Netherlands, Israel, Hungary, Spain and the United States.

R. Van Langenhove studied portraiture and nudes at the Free Academy Ghent between 1996 and 2001. He also studied under such artists as José Vandevijver(BE), Marcel De Grauwe(BE), Marion Henke(NL), Yehoshua Front(ISR) and Ya’akov Boussidan(ISR), from 1995 until 1999. These studies comprised among others oil painting of flowers, hands, portraits, cityscapes and nudes. He travelled and lived in France, Spain, Israel and Germany, experiences, which contributed to his evolvement as an artist. His works have been exhibited in several countries.

The work of R. Van Langenhove switches between his impressionism, expressionism and classical painting. At times it even comes close to fauvism. The oil paint is not just a medium to create an impression on the canvas but a substance to try and depict the invisible behind the visible; a spiritual journey of sorts. R. Van Langenhove’s work is inspired by Renoir, Monet, Rembrandt and El Greco. Main themes are contemporary cityscapes, portraits and nudes.

Or just maybe the work should speak for itself!
