Without having attended a Fine Arts or Architectural School, Vincent Lelièvre has been developing his own universe since he was 14. A keen walker with a passion for everyday life, Vincent weaves his work between the urbanity of reality and an escape from the imaginary. The artist from Lille, France, puts down his pencil before his ideas start, and allows himself to rediscover his universe which he builds brick by brick onto paper. He draws freehand when designing his work, and as a result of his skill on this year’s calendar, will bring you on a journey to his imaginary cities, offering a spectacular, beautiful and detailed result.Visit the artist’s website

Vincent Lelièvre puts each participating brewery in the spotlight by drawing them out with down to the smallest details. Count down the days of December by following the marked arrows to determine the position of the next beer and discover each of the exceptional breweries that this Advent calendar 2020 has in store for you!
