After studying advertising at Sint-Lukas University of Art & Design in Brussels, Marcel Ceuppens quickly became a successful and award winning Art Director working at the most creative advertising agencies in Belgium before to become a full time painter/illustrator. He began creating economic, highly conceptual digital paintings in 2010 and exhibits his work since then. His advertising experience is conveyed in the sharp, bold, and bright style of his fine art. He is passionate about mid-century art and design, and sometimes inserts a “man in a gray flannel suit” in his Calder-like images. It’s easy to see such influences as Picasso, Le Corbusier and Henry Moore in his work, while still feeling contemporary—a great fit for someone who wants an eye-catching yet refined piece. His paintings have been published in Belgian, British and American media and was featured in the Creative Review’s Illustration Annual 2011. He lives and works in New York since 2014.
