Klaas Verplancke

Klaas Verplancke’s (b. 1964) oeuvre is very diverse, but always features a sense of humour that ranges from gentle to sardonic, a poetic imagination, a preference for the depiction of abstract concepts and universal emotions, and a quirky, surrealist view of the world. Verplancke has won a Bologna Ragazzi Award, was finalist in 2006 for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for Illustration and has been nominated for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award more than ten times in a row.
