Looking through the Brecht Vandenbroucke portfolio is like looking into the mind of a wildly talented and funny social satirist. Vandenbroucke’s paintings and illustrations often feature colorful landscapes, absurdist imagery, and lighthearted but sharp pop culture commentary.
Vandenbroucke studied illustration at the the St-Lucas Hogeschool in Ghent, and he boasts an enviable client list; his work has appeared in venerable publications like Vice and the New York Times.
My favorite image in the Brecht Vandenbroucke portfolio shows what appears to be a ghost in a black robe draped over a hotel. The image is drawn as if it were being viewed through Google StreetView. The illustration captures the best parts of the Brecht Vandenbroucke portfolio in one image—irreverent, contemporary and patently ridiculous.
