Unique portraits of unique people

Although some art forms usually have the intention of escaping reality and to emphasize the detachment from reality, Teugels seeks out reality precisely because he wants to erase the boundary that lies between art and reality. 

Given the enormous appeal of this irresistible form of painted portraits that carry us “beyond” art into the realm of social and psychological history they ask us the question of what makes it worth leaving to future generations. Unlike a photo, everything is painted sharply with the greatest attention and as lifelike as possible. Images that you can keep on looking at, both from a distance and up close. 

Today, artists are able to realize things where current technologies fail.
