Leuven, small town big city | Hans

Hans | Señor Color

Artist and literary painter Hans Geyens always considers the city to be his playground. There’s nothing he enjoys more than wandering through it in search of inspiration. He loves the mix of history and the contemporary in Leuven. And everything in between.

His (street) art can be found in various places in the city and his handwriting decorates the front windows of shops and restaurants.


Leuven, small town, big city


Leuven is a small town with big city vibes. That makes Leuven unique. The convenience and cosiness of a small town on the one hand, and the creativity, versatility, and diversity of a metropolis on the other hand. Leuven is small in size, but large in what it offers to in terms of nightlife, shopping, art, and culture. You’ll find them all in Leuven.
