Brecht Evens is a Belgian graphic novelist from Ghent, who is currently based in Paris, France. He tells gripping stories in beautiful watercolors, that deal with underdogs and self-reflection. Evens is a member of Pulp de Luxe, a comics collective that specializes in adult comics. After winning a comics debut prize from the Flemish guild of comics artists (V.O.S.), he published his first comic album 'Een Boodschap uit de Ruimte' with publisher Van Halewyck' in October 2005.
In 2006, he made his second book, 'Vincent', published by Oogachtend. This critically acclaimed book deals with a boy who wrests himself from his home village and his parents to study in Dublin. It came with a soundtrack by the Dutch popgrop SUB. In 2009, his graphic novel 'Ergens waar je niet wil zijn' was published, a tale about social relations. In his 2014 book 'Panter' he hints at the subject of child abuse in a story about a girl and a mysterious man called Panter, who shows up from her wardrobe. Evens' graphic novels have also been published in English by Drawn & Quarterly.
