Lieven Engelen (1965) studied graphic design and advertising at the Academy of Fine Arts both in Brussels and Hasselt, Belgium and has since worked for agencies like BBDO and Lowe Prague. From art director to creative director eventually becoming a commercials director. In 2011 he went back to where it all began and started his career in photography with a focus on landscape and portrait photography. Taking his inspiration from the world at large and leaving it up to the viewer whether he engages with the proposed work.
While the roots of his work may lay in the past the approach is highly personal and contemporary.
Revealing a sense of identity and being. Reaching out but never accommodating. At most facilitating.
Lieven Engelen is a summa cum laude graduate in 2016 from the Fotovakschool Amsterdam.
