Well, we – the founders Bruno and Andreas - are passionate about Arts and Cycling. While we both have an international network and lived in several places in the world, the city of Brussels is a crucial place for us. We lived here for years and have walked and biked – even if it’s not always that bike friendly as town- thousands of times through our city, always impressed by its beautiful "Art Nouveau" houses along the streets. Putting the bicycle ("vélo" in French and our Flemish dialekt) and Art Nouveau together, resulted in "ArtNouvélo". Art Nouveau (or Jugendstil) was the dominant international art style during the "Belle Epoque" (late 19th – early 20th century), a golden age for our beloved city, with architect Victor Horta and others creating many landmarks of style. The characteristics of Art Nouveau are a sense of dynamism and movement, which refers again to our passion for cycling. Just as Art Nouveau did, we try to see and represent the beauty in everything, while trying to do something "new" with it. For us this results in the beauty of cycling through our artistic interpretations.
Last but not least, let’s not forget that Brussels is the hometown of the greatest cyclist ever -Eddy Merckx- and coming man Remco Evenepoel. So if you ever wonder "why ArtNouvélo?" : the name of our arts project is to honour the city where we lived and studied, and a sparkling cocktail of Eddy Merckx and Victor Horta.
Who We Are.
Two Belgian guys who love arts and a good story. But above all : we love the bicycle.
Believer in and co-founder of ArtNouvélo. Andreas studied Political Sciences. In his own words : "the equivalent of nothing." Don't let this mislead you though - the dude's having a versatile live, between Brussels and the midst of the African continent. Whenever he's not on the bicycle, he's talking or writing about it.

Founder and creative engine of ArtNouvélo. Bruno studied Geography. Not because he wanted to learn all flags and capitals of the world, but to nurture his curiosity for everything there is to see on this planet. He loves to paint and he loves to cycle, so he paints cyclists. Always in for a joke, only funny occasionally.
