Jan Vandeplancke (°1997, Ghent) graduated in 2019 as Master in Illustration at LUCA School of Arts Ghent. He soon started experimenting with sculptural objects and in situ installations. They tend to be vivid objects from a cartoonish, sometimes fictional world of clichéd ‘image pools’: drawing from comic book culture and cartoons, via games and toys, right up to archaeological excavations—including the weeds on the pavement. Vandeplancke's work invariably occurs in a colourful-grey zone. It’s just a wonderful place to linger.

Rufus factor: This playful, sculptural world is unreal at its most real!
