Artist Name

Luc Schol

Born: 1991

Hometown: Rotterdam

Based in: London

Luc Schol (b. 1991) is a Dutch visual artist creating his own fantastical realms. He is based in London and Rotterdam. After attending the Royal Academy of Arts in the Hague from 2009 to 2013 he received his BA in photography at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam in 2015. He obtained his MA at the Royal College of Arts in 2021 and is selected to attend an exchange with the Kyoto School of Arts. He exhibited his work at North Sea Jazz, Van Gogh Museum and others.

Schol's practice is concerned with exploring and questioning escapist realms, wether physical or digital. He traverses these lands by foot, mouse or joystick and use the camera to create large enigmatic imagery to invoke a meditative experience. Schol wonders what escapism means for the human condition, as it is so seemingly pointless yet so irrefutably important.

He focusses on building works that are simplistic, experiential, and transcendental.
