Francesca Van Haverbeke (b. 1988) is a Belgian artist living and working in London.
After obtaining a masters degree in Law (Ghent, Belgium) and International Relations (Milan, Italy), she changed career paths and did a postgraduate degree in writing and art direction at the Miami Ad School (Hamburg / Stockholm / Paris / Tokyo). She has worked in different agencies and created several global campaigns with a focus on women’s rights.
In 2022 Van Haverbeke decided to focus solely on her art practice. She has been included in several group shows and has had two solo shows, one in Brussels in 2021 and one in London in 2022. Her work was also selected to be part of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2022. In 2022 she attended the intensive drawing programme at the Royal Drawing School in London. Van Haverbeke works across drawing, painting and sculpture, drawing from a broad range of sources including observation, art history, folklore, nature and non Western art forms.
