Born in Mechelen, Belgium, in 1964, self-taught, Philip Wittmann began painting at the age of 26, in 1990. ‘I started to paint for myself and not to exhibit. It took him almost 30 years of relentlessness, as an amateur artist, to come up with a style and a touch that began to have a form of credibility in his own eyes. His influences are numerous, Dotremont, Alechinsky, Klee, Haring, Miro and many others. In 2005 he began to take calligraphy classes at the Maison du Livre in Brussels. In 2008, he discovered the origin of the first alphabets, Chinese, Mesopotamians, Egyptians, … The combination of signs and calligraphy then forms the basis of his style. He then builds his own alphabet. In September 2019, pushed by his relatives, he exhibited rue Blaes 150, in the marolles in the center of the popular district of Brussels. 14 works are hung. He sells 15. In 2020, at the age of 56, he decided to devote himself full time to his activity as a painter in order to make it his profession.
