Isabelle Vandenabeele

Isabelle Vandenabeele (b. 1972) works with lithography, woodcuts and etching. Her work is characterized by powerful lines, great expressiveness, striking colours and significant inner tension between the images. Vandenabeele depicts a story in a few key images, while always keeping it complex and subtle. She is not afraid of tapping into dark emotions. Rough and tough, direct and subtle, all at the same time: Vandenabeele’s pictures linger in the memory. In 2009 she won the fourth edition of Ilustrarte, a contest that rewards the most talented illustrators in the world.
