Drawing, nature and science always were of great significance to Sven Bellanger. The best way to interlink these interests was to embark on the unique Masters program of Scientific Illustration after his MA of Arts in Graphic Design. The study programme, offered by The Academy of Fine Arts and The Faculty of Medicine of Maastricht University (Maastricht, The Netherlands), allowed him to further refine his drawing skills, making him familiar with various scientific terminologies and led to a deeper understanding of human and animal anatomy. Theoretical knowledge was reinforced through practical experience, including dissection, microscopy, processing of serial sections, ct & mri results, etc.

Sven is presently working as a scientific botanical illustrator at The National Botanic Garden of Belgium and teaches several drawing courses at the School of Arts in Ghent.
