Born in Roeselare in 1981, he lives and works in Brussels.

In his somber, romantic works, Thomas Lerooy deals with the impermanence of being from an unexpectedly ironic perspective: in his fantastic drawings, which the artist executes with the precision of an Old Master, putti are strangled with garden hoses, busts of heroes are hollowed out like a tomato and filled with prawns, a man crumbling under the weight of his own head. Teeming with allegorical content, he adds a permanent malice that has always preserved Belgian art of too much darkness. Lerooy sees the artist as a mediator between man and his inner world, a world that in his works becomes luxuriant and manifests itself by overflowing the structure of the body.
