Erik van Lieshout

This is the fifth publication in a series of portraits of the city of Rotterdam published by Witte de With, Center for Contemporary Art in collaboration with artists who are particularly concerned with photographic media and book forms.

Erik van Lieshout, born in the Netherlands, is based in Rotterdam. His often provocative works deal with violence, politics, sex and commercial culture with humourous, candid and sordid tones.

His early oeuvre, in the 1990s, comprised of mainly expressionist paintings and large-scale drawings; in the late 1990s, he moved to producing minimalistic sculptures and video installation, and he is now working with multi-media.
