Koen Meersman studied Interior Architecture at the Hogeschool voor Wetenschap en Kunst Sint-Lucas in Ghent and at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee till 1995. In 2000 he obtained his Post-Graduate Masters Degree in Ephemeral Architecture and Art at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona.

He is interested in the creation of abstract space through systematic repetitions and systematic applications of forms, colors, techniques or contents. Too, his work is eclectic and characterized by the fragile nature of the pieces and by the focus on their manual creation.

Nowadays, Koen Meersman is producing a series of paper structures, plastic structures, wood sculptures, drawings and collages. His works have been added to private collections in Brussels, Barcelona, Tel Aviv, London and New York.

Koen Meersman is a teacher at the Sint-Lucas Faculty of Architecture, KULeuven, in Gent and Brussels, and at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam.

He has been guest lecturer at several universities and design schools in Spain, Mexico and the United States of America.

Koen Meersman is currently based in Antwerp.
