Carel Lanters (Didam 1955) was educated at the Academy of Fine Art AKI in Enschede (1976-1981). During his education he initiated the department mixed media in which he graduated cumlaude. By way of sublimation he intensifies observation. He is not locked in one technique or material. For some complicated situations he developed monumental works, but he also integrates his art in daily life by arranging street furniture in a new order. He develops experimental work; work for exhibitions and for the public space in which he also operates as a curator. He is married with the South Korean artist Lee Eun Young and working in collaboration with her.
Since 2007 he teaches at the ArtEZ art school Arnhem in Fine Art with specialisation in sculpture. The last years he also coached the third and fourth year students.
