A gardener by trade, Jean Stas lives in Brussels, undertaking regular excursions in the region during his spare time. Beginning to paint at the age of sixty-five, his works represent colorful landscapes, small dwellings, and gardens. Naive in style, his images are based on chromos, colored lithographs which he enjoys examining on the counter in a print dealer’s store in the city.

Jean Dubuffet met the art dealer Geert van Bruaene on a trip to Belgium and made the acquisition of four works by Jean Stas from him, the last work was bought in 1960.
