I've been doing a 30 Day Drawing Challenge, flexing my creative muscles a bit! Check it out!
Lorenzo De Waele, was it?
That's right! I'm Lorenzo De Waele, an all-round creative tall guy currently living in Lokeren, Belgium!
I started creatively with photography in high school, unsure of what to study as I was growing up. And so, as soon as I graduated in 2005, I obeyed the urge to express myself creatively and enrolled to study Graphic Design - Webdesign at the Royal Academy of Arts (KASK) in Ghent, Belgium.
This is where I realised how much I enjoy creativity and solving problems and challenges, on paper in the field of liberal arts (I love drawing!) and digitally, designing websites.
After obtaining a Masters degree in the Graphic Arts I continued exploring. I stuck around art school and tried my hand at Illustration for a year, and a teachers education in the Graphic Arts over the course of 2 years.
I explored the field of Liberal Arts with my personal work, resulting in my first exhibitions, and a leap in developing a personal drawing style. This, to me, is a continuously ongoing process. When one style feels too easy, I get restless, eager to explore new styles and grow creatively.
Once out of school, this restlessness became a great need to go adventuring. So I traveled alone accross the Northern American continent in the winter of 2011. Upon returning in early 2012 I felt renewed and inspired. Time to put this creativity to use, I'd say.
So, let's talk!
