Landvreugd studied Fine Art & History of Art (joined hons.) at Goldsmiths University in London. As a Fulbright Fellow he continued his studies in Modern Art: Critical and Curatorial Studies at Columbia University in New York.

Charl LandvreugdCharl Landvreugd works as a visual artist, mainly in the fields of sculpture, performance, installation, and video, and he has experience as a curator and writer with several (inter)national publications to his name.

He has worked in Europe, the Caribbean, and the United States. Both theoretical and practical, his work is always looking for representations of the genesis of a new humankind. In a catchy visual language that mixes science fiction, futurism, kitsch and refined aesthetics, his work speaks about the possibility of colour losing its meaning and of creating an apolitical humanity.
