Previous exhibitions - Lectrr
From 26 january till 06 april 2014
Lectrr (Steven DEGRYSE) was born in 1979 in Roeselare and now lives in Ghent.
At the end of the nineties, Lectrr, one of the first Flemish cartoonists, started to publish a daily cartoon on the internet. His website was a huge success and very soon he made his debut as an illustrator in comic magazines in Flanders and the Netherlands. Subsequently he became a professional cartoonist and his work was published in Computer Magazine, Algemeen Dagblad (NL), Menzo, Humo, Vacature and P-Magazine.
In early 2005, his first collection "Hara Kiwi" was published. As of January 2008, his gag strip "Lars" was published daily in Het Algemeen Dagblad (NL), Gazet van Antwerpen, Het belang van Limburg and the dogs magazine Woef.
In addition, for the last three years, Lectrr has been the "House-cartoonist" at the newspaper ‘De Standaard’.
Besides being a cartoonist, Lectrr is also a very busy bee in many fields. He writes periodicals and designs his own T-shirts. He even toured the Netherlands with his ‘Cartoonference’, a mix of stand-up comedy and comics on stage. He shows his commitment by designing the T-shirts and children’s wear for Greenpeace and by sponsoring a drawing contest for children organised by UNEP, the United Nations Environment Programme.
Lectrr has been nominated several times for the Belgian Press Cartoon Award and for the ‘Stripschapspenning’, a prestigious contest in Holland for comic strips. He was runner up as the public's choice at the BeNe Cartoon Prize 2004. He has repeatedly been invited as a member of the jury for the Knokke cartoon festival and in 2011 he became the official city cartoonist for Turnhout.
