PainterFilmmaker °1968 belgium

Klaus Verscheure decided in 1986 to attend RITS to train as an animated filmmaker. He finished in June 1989 on l’Entrée de l’hiérophante, an animation film based on music by Blaine L. Reininger (violinist and founding father of Tuxedomoon). 

Since 1995 klaus works as a freelance director. Most of the time he directs fiction series. Over the past years he was also asked to make several films for museums which gave him a real taste for filmmaking. In 2008 he made the award winning short ‘We’ll meet again!’, for which the British band Tindersticks made the music.

During the built up of this career, klaus kept on working on the job which he considers the most important labour of all. He never ceased painting and drawing. Both mingled up with film and video and melted into installations, ART remained the heartbeat of klaus’ way of living. CJK (Centrum Jonge Kunst) in Ghent promoted his work and send it to exhibitions in Holland, Great Britain and Greece, after it was shown in their gallery in Ghent.

Besides his career as a freelance director his studio was the world where the fire kept burning. Most of the time his artwork remained inside, but in the summer of 2009, klaus deciced that time had come to open up the doors of the studio and step out to show his work.

In November 2009, the Broelmuseum in Kortrijk (Belgium) decided to buy one of his paintings. This is the first time his work enters the public collection of a museum. In 2012 a video-installation was commissioned by C-Mine and the City of Genk

2010 is the year of an international breakthrough, in January Amstel Gallery (Amsterdam based) took his work to the Los Angeles Art Show, a solo in New York followed in March at Jacob Witzenhausen Gallery ....
