Artist's path

Henk De Ruddere was born in 1961 in Ypres and studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. He lives in Brussels since 2005 and is passionate about his fellow man. This interest propels him to paint portraits, portraits that transcend the true nature. He is strongly influenced by the extraordinary work of Lucian Freud and the almost obsessive treatment of portrait and body in his work, for him the painting is the person himself.
