Jonathan Karsilo is a multidisciplinary designer with a BA in Interior Design from the Architecture Department of Mechelen (Belgium). He completed his studies with an Erasmus program in Interior Architecture at Ecole Boulle (Paris). Looking for projects where he could become more artistically involved, he worked for Niek Kortekaas a belgian scenographer and director, and Jan Strobbe, a belgian architect and scenographer. By doing this he immediately felt that this word of theatre and film was much more the field where he could truly express himself. He decided to start studying scenography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and graduated with great success. His recent scenography works intertwine elements of sound and music. Feeling the urge to explore a new medium once again, the artist decided to study sound design and he is at the moment actively working in the field of sound and graphic design. He has worked on the original soundtrack and sound design of the award winning short movie Camouflage, selected for the Cannes film festival in 2017. Jonathan is always looking for new sound environments, he has an unlimited interest in music and sound structures, but loves silence the most.
