Van Grieken attended the Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten and the Nationaal Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunsten in Antwerp; later, he attended the Koninklijke Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Mechelen, where he was appointed to the post of professor.

Van Grieken also embarks on many trips, mainly to Portugal; he brings back his visions in the form of series, with the same keen eye for detail and the same sense of neglect, but with more traditional variations on the theme. He has held solo shows of his paintings in the form of series, including in ...
