bio / cv / education / work


Karel Verhoeven (°1982, Ghent)
creates autonomous and applied works beyond places. This includes both print, digital, spatial work, video, photography and performances.

Since his graphic design, art and mediastudies in Ghent (BE) and Athlone (IRL), he started working as a designer and visual artist. In his work he plays with material and spaces. Verhoeven adapts or reflects specific places as islands, buildings, parcs, cemeteries and urban squares.
