Stefaan De Croock (1982) lives and works in Bruges, Belgium. He mastered in fine arts (graphic design) at Sint-Lucas in Ghent. Since 2011 Stefaan fully dedicates his time to his artistic craft and project ‘Strook’. His training and experience as a graphic designer put a clear mark on his artistic vision. Stefaan draws some basic lines first. Every drawing starts with that fast spontaneous, even impulsive action – leaning towards automatic drawing. Within those lines, he creates different dimensions by adding color, structure and narrative details. Story lines fight for the attention of the viewer, yet the larger composition holds ground.
