Victor Sanchez studied at the Royal Academy for Fine Arts of Brussels. He graduated in 1980 and completed his pictural and technical skills at the Laeken based Brussels School for Photography. In 1990, he opted for a freelance activity as a hyperrealist illustrator and ever since works with several advertisement agencies.

 

His poetic and surrealistic art is favourably singled out by renowned art critics such as Stéphane Rey and Anita Nardon. However, he still keeps a critical eye on his art. As an untiring perfectionist, he first exploited the subtle eroticism of veiled bodies and now reinvents his own Hyms to Feminity with an art that resolutely strays from the beaten track.

Recently rewarded at the international erotica exhibition in Lausanne, Switzerland.

 

«I would like to reconcile the art lovers with the erotic art. Of course, the subjects which I painted can shock; but a painting in itself is neither disgusting nor vulgar. It is a kind of encouragement to get out of the passivity, the slowness, to enter in the game of the art and play hide-and-seek with it.»
