This year’s Crossing Border poster was made by well-renowned artist Pjeroo Roobjee.

Pjeroo Roobjee (Ghent, Belgium. 7 February 1945) took painting, drawing and engraving courses at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in his hometown of Ghent and in the preparatory programme of the State Academy of Fine Arts (Rijksakademie) in Amsterdam.

Currently, he works as a painter, (graphic) artist, actor, speaker, writer, playwright, entertainer and singer.

His predominantly monumental canvases have travelled across the globe and were exhibited at major art shows, such as the biennials of São Paolo and Venice.
Both his visual and his literary endeavours have won several awards. He received many distinctions in the Prix de la Jeune Peinture Belge, he became a Leo J. Krijn Prize laureate for writing his debut novel ‘De nachtschrijver’ and he won the Eugène Baie Prize in 1984. He received the Louis Paul Boon Prize in 1994, the Ark Prize of the Free Word in 1998 and the Culture Prize from the City of Ghent in 2004. In 2018, he was awarded the Luc Bucquoye Prize by the Free University of Brussels for his literary oeuvre.
