Lennert Berx




Biography

Born in 1996 and raised in Alken (BE). Lennert discovered his creativity at a very young age, starting with drawing, painting and at a later age songwriting.
In 2016, he started studying photography and visual arts at Luca School of Arts in Genk (BE).
Ever since then, Lennert has been developing his own visual style and artistic projects.

Lennert’s art practice explores and researches the identity and social roles of individuals and himself in our complex modern society. His main focus lies in searching new perspectives in widely known thematics, and telling personal, yet socially relevant stories that hide a subtle, metaphorical message aimed at the greater mass.

His methods of research mainly include analog photography, but also video, audio, installations, sculptures and many more.

In 2020, Lennert was awarded the ‘Wanatoe’ prize after graduating with his masters project ‘Onkruid’. He continues to develop his artiscic practise by studying free arts at PXL MAD Faculty in Hasselt (BE). His works are currently being exhibited on several locations in Belgium, both in group- and solo exhibitions.
