The flandrien art gallery introduction

The nickname “Flandrien” was first used to describe the tough Flemish track cyclists who competed at the six-day races in the early decades of the twentieth century.  The term was later adopted for the gutsy riders from Flanders who dominated the Tour of Flanders and other Spring classics.

Today the term Flandrien is not so much about a nationality but a mentality that encompasses universal values such as camaraderie, grit, determination, resilience, and a fighting spirit. And it’s these values that are celebrated through works of art at the Flandrien Gallery, which is located at the Flandrien Hotel in Belgium in the heart of the Flemish Ardennes.

Our photo art production is done in partnership with the ArtFactory, one of Europe’s most highly regarded production labs. Awarded as a “Certified Plus Lab” by ChromaLuxe, ArtFactory gives you the certainty of a constant, optimal result with accurate colorimetry and strict compliance with quality standards.
