Born 1973 Bree, Koen Van den Broek lives and works in Antwerp. Graduated from Architecture at K.U. Leuven, Belgium (1993); and Painting at the Academy of Visual Arts St. Joost, Breda, (1997).

Van den Broek paints man’s architectural interventions on the landscape. While zooming in on cracks, curbstones and shadows found on sidewalks and roads, he has made his personal statement on the traditional medium of landscape painting.
