PictoTalks: Brecht Vandenbroucke

Antwerp-based artist Brecht Vandenbroucke studied illustration at St. Lucas Hogeschool in Ghent. While drawing is always his starting point he paints, writes stories, makes sculptures, installations, short films, and comics. Crude style and vivid colours are the trademark of his work, which embraces modern life in all its facets with a thematic focus on technology, identity, freedom, art, childhood and death. Brecht packages his commentary and analysis in surrealism and absurdist humour. Aside from his illustrations for the New York Times, Les Inrockuptibles, Le Monde Republique and numerous Belgian magazines, or designing T-shirts for Diesel or Lacoste, he has exhibited extensively in France, Holland, London, Switzerland and Brussels. In 2009 he won 2nd prize in the Fumetto competition (Lucerne) and has continued making comics ever since. His recent and acclaimed comic-book debut ‘White Cube’ is painted with brush and gouache, and reflects on aesthetics, criticism and the arts. 36'39'', Stereo, 720p HD mov file (H.264), 681.14 MB
