1. New Bruges museum illustrator
Pieter Van Eenoge (°1976, Bruges) studied graphic design and illustration at the Hoger Sint-Lucas Instituut in Ghent (now LUCA) and has since 1999 worked as a full-time freelance illustrator for newspapers, magazines, publishing houses and all kinds of companies here and abroad. In a style he describes as ‘introverted expressionism’, Van Eenoge translates complex themes into legible images, and vice versa.
His small paintings have already decorated the pages of Humo, Vrij Nederland, The New York Times and Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin. A first picture book was published in 2011 ('De dokter en het leger van Davy’ with Edward van de Vendel) and he designed the poster of the 75th Book Fair. A year later, Van Eenoge won a gold medal from the Society of Illustrators in New York thanks to his giant goose board for the Bokrijk Open Air Museum. Followed by: double covers for Zeit Magazin, illustrations for The New Yorker, a campaign for Eurostar and a mural in Ronse. Later this year, he will publish ‘Een boek vol huizen', his biggest work to date.
