Manuel Vermeire

Manuel Vermeire (born 12 July 1987) is a Belgian printmaker whose work mainly consists in reproducing paintings in the form of wood-engravings.


Manuel Vermeire was born in Chiusdino (Siena) on July 12, 1987, the son of Belgian parents who had moved to Italy a few years earlier.

Today, his wood-engravings follow, in the footsteps of past masters such as Timothy Cole, the tradition of reproducing famous paintings in a print version.
