Striking plasterwork


Belgian artist Alain Van Asbroeck loves to work with rough structures to give walls, ceilings and floors a special look.

For more than 25 years he is experimenting with all kind of plaster techniques and never uses one of these techniques for a second time.


9On the walls of his living room Alain brought on a mixture of lime and wax.

The original tiled floor was badly damaged and is now replaced with a number of plaster layers.

The gloss was obtained by the use of olive oil soap and by polishing the floor with a special stone.
