Koen SCHERPEREEL (1961-1997)


Karel and Koen. Two brothers. Born and raised in Bruges, Belgium. "Koen wasn't a normal guy. Extremely energetic. If you were in the same room as Koen, you immediately felt his energy", said Karel Scherpereel, his brother: "My brother was extremely talented in different ways. Always searching for the deeper meaning of different things and experimenting with all sorts of stuff, both in the positive and negative way: extreme and adventurous travelling, alcohol, drugs, relationships". An epicurean pur-sang. The impact of his experimental way of living had its impact on his body. It weakened his body, but yet he remained his energetic self. 

Koen Scherpereel studied at the School of Arts Sint-Lucas in Ghent, Belgium and received different awards through his career. His first public appearance as an artist was in the city center of Bruges, Belgium, at 't Leerhuys (literally translated into the "House of Learning") in 1983. Nowadays, Koen is admired and highly appreciated by a group of collectors and art-lovers and he deserves to be counted among the most prominent painters of our time. 

His style is characterized as a mixture of graffity-art, expressionism and surrealism
