Born in Berchem-Antwerpen, Belgium in 1952. He trained during an extrmely turbulent period in contemporary art. In the 1970's, minimalism and conceptual or so-called idea art was the central movement.
Always putting the independence of the image and of the work of rt as a visual subject up front. He never wastes his time on subjective stories. He also has no formal worries. Vekeman is a very straigh forward paintere without a hiden agenda. He records the visual materials from the world surrounding him, makes his choice and refrains from giving any comments. He offers neither clear social criticism nor any obvious philosophic commentary.
