Koen Lybaert, born 1965 in Wilrijk, Belgium is a contemporary abstract artist. He creates mostly abstract and landscape oil paintings. His technique consists of carefully layering colors on canvas or paper. He creates a dense, subtle and slowly deepening mixture of overlapping colors and shapes. His work is an abstract and unique view of the nature around him. Woods, lakes, mountains, sea and desolate landscapes are his main inspiration. His contemporary landscape oil paintings are based on his own photographs taken during walks or travels.
