Creativity meets intelligence
Dirk is much more than a comedian, artist and performer. He's a very intelligent person, with a masters degree in Micro-Electronics Engineering. Thanks to his degree, he knows how to tackle things. Complex geometry and structures are a piece of cake, and you can see that in the artwork of Amazings. Every single LEGO brick has its purpose.
In addition, Dirk is a true polyglot. A polyglot is a person who can express himself fluently in different languages. He masters no less than 6 different languages: English, Dutch, French, German and Spanish. In addition, languages have become a real hobby for Dirk. He is passionate about learning Modern Greek, Swedish, Italian, Russian and Czech. At the moment he is also experimenting with Chinese and Arabic.
In the past Dirk was also a co-founder of the Gravensteen Group. This is a group of Belgian artists and intellectuals who argued for a reformation of the Belgian government on 21 February 2008. The authors wrote their manifesto based on different political and ideological principles. The group got its name from the fact that the members met for the first time in a building on the Lievekaai in the shadow of the Gravensteen Castle in Ghent, where the first Manifesto was set up.
