Toon was born on the 4th of September 1971 in Vilvoorde and lives and works in Waasmunster, where he has his own atelier.
Toon is also known as TDC in the artistic world.
From his childhood he was a creative guy.
In the eighties he started as a graffiti artist, and this style can still be found in his works.
Toon benefits from an official art education, which he got at the Art Academy of Saint-Lucas in Brussels.
After this he expanded his artistic career as an independent, mainly as a decorative painter in movie- and theatre techniques.
Toon creates sculptures, paintings, drawings in which he always tries to use innovative techniques and materials.
Toon is very experimental and explicit in the use of colours.
The bright colours make of his paintings virtually visual eye catchers, and also the substance (viscosity) of his paint is extremely prominent. His sculptures can be seen as a three-dimensional complement of his paint works.
His works are an expression of his feelings, passions,…of him being himself.
What Toon drives in his way of creating is his eternal struggle with the society and himself. By using unique materials and decisive colours that he agrees, he makes his world milder and more beautiful.
