With my illustrations with concept and photocollages, signed with "Evivanca", I want to attract people's attention to nature. People looking up, instead of down. Grabbing a pair of binoculars to see the landscape, a bird in the sky.“In a world full of people, only some want to fly, isn’t that crazy?”
When I ride my bike through my region the Flemish Ardennes in Belgium, I sometimes spot a buzzard, falcon or little owl. These unexpected encounters give me a moment of happiness. Some years ago I was lucky to assist in a bird of prey show. It was a wonderful experience to see an Eurasian eagle-owl and Golden Eagle so closeby.
What motivates me as an artist is 'the love of making'. Richard Taylor, founder of WETA expresses it like this:“The love of making. Not focused only to make images for a screen, but also make things that are aspiring, beautiful and craftbased for people of the world." I want to make people curious about birds and nature. Making someone smile or swear because of the cool concept or style of my illustrations. Whenever my grandfather cursed when I showed him a work, I knew he liked it, because he cursed when he saw something amazing.
