Born in 1989, Belgium.

Works and lives in Namur - Bruxelles, Belgium.

He studied in the drawing studio at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels (2010-2016) and obtained an advanced Master's degree in partnership with the ULG. He has participated in several artistic residencies including that of the Fondation privée du Carrefour des arts (2019-2020) and was selected for the Prix de la ville de Tournai (2021), the Prix Découverte du Rouge-Cloître (2022). Laurent Dumortier also had his first solo exhibition at Michèle Schoonjans Gallery (2022). He continues his work with the project Windows Shadows Disavow (2018-/) and his research on the figurative representation of everyday life and the narrativity of nightlife with the position of the voyeur, windows and intimate living spaces at its center. In his work, there is a recurring questioning regarding the frame, the narration, the figures, oblivion, the anecdotal, the dream and a disturbing part of the human being in his nightlife. as well as a part of mysterious bestiality. He is very attached to the works of Gail Albert Halaban, Wilhelm Hammershoi, Edward Hopper and especially Francis Bacon because he rediscovers this "letting go" of form and material; this gesture which gives birth to figures in a permanent mutation and this narrativity of the image between tension and sobriety.
