Antoine Liesens grew up in the 'late 60s'. The rock and punk culture stood for colourful and has influenced Antoine Liesens in his work that drowns in color. In the first part of his career he worked in the field of furniture and interior design. The interest in pop artists determined his interest in painting. He started experimenting early with various techniques. The result are images with the energy of rock and punk and with the feeling of pop art. Antoine Liesens' paintings are a fresh new kind of pop art. He makes clear references to Warhol, using cinematic and contemporary techniques for filtering color and image.
