BIOGRAPHY

Dirk Vander Eecken studied painting at the Academy of Kortrijk and the Higher Institute for Fine Arts (HISK) in Antwerp. For several years he has been working closely with the group electron microscopy and nanotechnology of the Department of Physics at the University of Antwerp. His experimental approach leads to innovative work in which painting, graphic techniques and science merge. In 2008 he was the first to receive a doctorate in the Arts with a thesis on the ‘art of the invisible’. Recently, a work by Dirk Vander Eecken was acquired by SMAK (Ghent).
