Jan Praet is always researching the perfect balance between colours and highlights, both through lines and forms, leaving also room for monumentaly. In his figurative works, with vieuws spanning impossible and incredible distances, he is able to interpret and mix a dramatic, passionate and composed methodology. From his sculptures emerges a deep awareness of the most noble human virtues. ( D. A. )
