Digital Man Living in a Curious World

Marcel Ceuppens is a freelance art director who is incredibly talented with a digital paintbrush!

The minimalist paintings are anything but minimal in the underlying message of universality. "It is easy to either directly relate, or be rather familiar with this universal character as he conforms to the expected norms of both life and work in an unresisting manner."

The faceless character in each scene seems to lack emotion, almost willingly surrendering to boredom. But then, we see the character painting a circle while looking at squares or engaging with a family and the narrative sparks a new, complex curiosity within each scene and across the series.
