After studying advertising at Sint-Lukas University of Art & Design in Brussels, Marcel Ceuppens became an award winning Art Director working at the most creative advertising agencies in Belgium before to become a full time painter and illustrator. He began creating economic, highly conceptual digital paintings in 2010, works which often explore themes of disconnection, complacency and detachment as a universal aspect of day-to-day existence. Many works are centered around a faceless man situated within different dream-like locations, the paintings seem to beg the question: “where is one’s place in the world?” Masterfully illustrated, these images attest to Ceuppens’s ability to extract a sensation and develop it into a statement. The result is a variety of paintings that all have a feeling of disconnection and loneliness. In 2013 his work took a new, less conceptual direction, with a series of neo-modernist paintings. Bigger, more colorful, more extravert, these paintings are inspired by his passion for mid-century art, design and architecture. 

His paintings have been published in Belgian, British and American media and his work was featured in the Creative Review’s Illustration Annual 2011. Some of his exhibitions include Vogelsang Gallery, Brussels, the Affordable Art Fair, New York, Scope Fair, Miami, Art International, Zurich,  and the National Arts Club, New York.
