“Hi, my name is Hervé Missiaen. Visionary artist, author, facilitator and world traveller.
I value the wisdom of 100 prominent Flemish role models I approached, interviewed and even painted on linen canvas. I wish I could live their insights and thoughts. They surely form the foundations of that human being I wish to become.
I am coming from a sound economic background with regard to my education. I stood at the head of four companies. I served my customers all over the world in 8 languages. I am following the political and economic situation closely. Now I am travelling our epic planet and I am capturing the urgent needs of our modern society. I meet influencers and different cultures and I embrace freedom.
I cannot longer close my eyes for the negligent way we all treat our mother nature.
Next to this, I notice that our Flemish people is much too humble and too afraid of the environment, afraid of retirement, afraid of taxes, afraid of the left, afraid of the right, afraid of Europe, afraid of the Walloon, afraid of terror, afraid of privacy, afraid of losing his/her job, afraid of digital, afraid of the Chinese, afraid of the banks, afraid of the rich, afraid of justice, afraid of the official, afraid of politics. Afraid of everything and everyone…
I am convinced that this on-going crisis in our Flemish minds is constantly holding us back.
Flanders is not known anymore as a reference region in the world, Flanders region does not shine anymore beyond its own borders”
