DIETER LANNOO (1976)
Dieter Lannoo lives and works in Ghent. Graduated as a interieur- and jewelry-designer, plus a background as a street-artist. With those influences of designing, creating and the ability to abstract, he creates a whole new and unique language of hard contrasts and textures.
The concept leans towards the graphical/architectural shapes and feel. And the constructive abstract language exists here out of lines, shapes and mostly out of rectangles how are representing certain kinds of identities. The fascination for this goes back to his childhood, to observe people with patience and watching those identities moving, adapting or unfolding. This in all kinds of ways. Each with their own beliefs or judgement, helping or undermining themself along the way.
