Joep Van Lieshout was born in the Netherlands in 1963, and studied at the Academy of Modern Art in Rotterdam. Founding Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) in 1995, he is still based in Rotterdam, working on a range of projects across architecture, design and contemporary art. Known for his trademark use of brightly coloured polyester, AVL has attained international recognition for work that balances different fields of creativity, blurring the boundaries of design. Van Lieshoutâ€™s work explores recurring themes of autarky, power and politics, as well as life and death, creating pieces that are practical, uncomplicated and substantial.
