The Belgian artist has used the time of confinement to move away from the figurative and embrace abstraction completely: "I already felt very free before. Today the range of experiences has widened even more. Art brut, with the work of abstraction that it requires, brings up an inner life, a dialogue with myself, even new forms of regression that feed a renewed work. By distorting things, by twisting reality, I find that we get closer to the truth of things." (bio excerptThéophile Pillault).

Work of raw abstraction, of free expression. It is you who make the work and who see in it what you want according to your experience. Duga created this painting spontaneously with his feelings of the moment and it has of course a meaning for him, probably different from yours. He has worked a lot on the continuous line and integrates fragments of lines and words in his paintings that allow you to be guided towards its meaning.

Through the use of a multitude of artistic mediums ranging from painting to sculpture, DUGA, brings together a particular aesthetic in his works. This Belgian artist finds his roots, his influences, in the primitive arts, African art, Oceanic art, Amerindian art, brut art but also in naive art.

Detach from academicism to create your own style

Born in 1963 in Brussels, Christian Dugardeyn (alias DUGA) is an artist belonging to the Free Expression movement. After an essential stint at the Fine Arts, he quickly freed himself from the artistic techniques taught to refocus on his instinctive emotions. He paints and sculpts viscerally, in a state of regression and on the fringes of contemporary artistic trends.

The reappropriation of his influences to give shape to his emotions

DUGA gives free rein to his emotions through different techniques: drawing, painting and sculpture. Among the contemporary artists who have permeated his work, we find among others Basquiat and Combas. From the free figuration movement, DUGA is notably inspired by Aléchinsky, Appel and the Cobra group. Without forgetting Picasso, Schiele and Expressionism as well as Dubuffet, Art Brut and Street Art. According to him, an artist cannot remain isolated in his corner, he must open up, soak up influences from the past in order to reshape them and create.

In Picasso, Basquiat and in Street Art, it is the deformations of the characters that interests him, with the preservation of a certain anatomical fidelity and gesturality. From Street Art, writings and graffiti, he particularly retains the fluidity and speed of the gesture as well as the explosion of colors.
