Born in 1974 in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg.
Lives and works in Kayl, Luxembourg.
He used to play the guitar in a band, called dEFDUMp, from 1993 until 2008. Over the years, he learned a lot about different computer programs, video, photography, printing an he was introduced to a large palette of techniques, which now mostly find their way into his work. The greater part of his works are large multimedia installations. While the primary accent is set on the paintings and photographs, sculptures and different "props", aswell as selfproduced videos or sound backgrounds, are used to set them in extended contexts. Some of his installations are walkable sceneries, in which the viewer becomes, for a short period of time, part of the work. In more recent works, the role of the spectator becomes increasingly important. Those artworks take their shape by or with the intervention of the visitor. The wide range of techniques and mediums that he gathered over the years, allow him to adapt his different bodies of work, visually, to the treated subject matters.
His work includes drawings, collages, paintings, sculptures, video- and sound-installations... The only constant being an ongoing engagement with Mankind / Art, its history, its heroes and its debaucheries.

From the Series: MDR-Association (2016)
MDR "Making Dirk Real" was a performative project for the Luxembourg art week 2016.
Over a period of 3 months, more than 250 A4 sized "positive" works were created, of which a selection has been digitally enlarged, then reworked manually to give unique "negative" artworks, melting digital and traditional elements.
MDR was a temporary artistic collaboration between the two artists Marc PIERRARD and Russel B. (and their creation Dirk Felsknecht). The letters MDR stand for Marc / Dirk / Russel but were picked because they can endorse various meanings. In common sense it's the abreviation for the french equivalent of LOL, litterally meaning "Mort De Rire". It can also mean "Mort Du Régime" "Manque De Respect".
