Biography Jef Verheyen
Jef Verheyen studied painting, drawing, and ceramics at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Higher Institute in Antwerp.
After opening a ceramics studio and shop with his wife Dani Franque, L'Atelier 14, Jef Verheyen focused more and more on painting.
During his many travels to Italy in the mid 1950s, he met the artists Piero Manzoni (1933-1963), Roberto Crippa (1921-1972) and Lucio Fontana (1899-1968), with whom he built up a life long artistic relation. Having played an active role in founding the G 58 group in Antwerp, in the Spring of 1958, and taken part in its first exhibitions, Verheyen broke away from the group after the opening of his first show at the Hessenhuis.
