|About the Illustrator: Eduart Baçe
Eduart Baçe (b. 1967, Gjirokastr, Albania), trained as a sculptor at the Tirana Academy of Arts under the old totalitarian regime. Chaos following the fall of the Stalinist state forced Eduart to leave his homeland. He settled in the Netherlands in 1994 and was now able to experiment with a diversity of materials, forms and colours. His traditional way of working developed into a more conceptual and contemporary art form. Eduart Baçe's work has been shown in Greece, Belgium and the Netherlands - as well as the country of his birth, Albania. He paints almost exclusively human figures, portraits and characters. Eduart Bace is a sought-after portraitist. Since January 2010, Eduart has been a qualified Lecturer of Fine Arts in Education, and he gives arts lessons in workshops.
