Art of the matter
Karel has lost his roots in Belgium and can't make any here.
An insightful testimony by Jewish artist Karel Lek who fled Antwerp during WWII and moved with his parents as refugees to North Wales when he was still a young boy.
"I didn't have any roots in Belgium and I wasn't allowed to grow any roots here."
"Karel Lek has always been part of the Tudor Rose & Beaumaris for me, he gave me a print when I left for New Zealand and his work is still as good as ever."
"Just bought one of his paintings at Oriel Tegfryn, Menai Bridge. I admire his style of painting. Hope to be able to buy some more of his work."
