16/01/2013Ever Meulen honoured with Henry Van de Velde Award for Career

Works by Belgian illustrator and comic strip artist Eddy Vermeulen, better known by his artist name Ever Meulen, have graced the cover of the Belgian magazine Humo and the New Yorker. Most recently he also received the Henry Van de Velde Career Award, Design Flanders' annual award which acknowledges exceptional designers and businesses. “Eddy has coloured the lives of many people,” says spokesperson Bie Luyssaert. “But people like him are often unaware of their influence. We like to honour their effect on the collective consciousness.”

Following in the slipstream of the award, the Flemish Parliament’s exhibition space De Loketten is currently running an expo with posters Kaaitheater, Beursschouwburg, Rock Rally, covers obviously Humo as well as the New Yorker and Libération, record covers Telex, Raymond, De Nieuwe Snaar, postage stamps, a carpet and books which bear testimony to the artist’s iconic hand.

Other talents honoured with a Design Vlaanderen award are Maarten De Ceulaer, who received the Henry Van de Velde Award for Young Talent, and the well-known design brand Indera, who received its award for Business. Their works will also be on show at De Loketten.
