BIO OF FIRST PLACE WINNER IBAN VAN DER ZEYP:

I was born in 1969 in Mortsel, Belgium. I have an artistic family, with photographers, musicians, a painter and a fashion designer, so creating is in my blood. I attended art high school, where I developed the base of what would become my own style: curvism. The first years after graduation were tough, trying to make a name for myself while earning a living doing tedious jobs. In 1997 I held a solo exhibition that put me on the map, at least locally, and I’ve been a professional painter ever since. www.facebook.com/iban.curvisme
