Sculpture, bronze, acrylic, lacquer. The primitive arts are an important source of inspiration for Duga. These works from other cultures speak to him viscerally. He reproduces in bronze the ones that speak to him the most, both by their spirit and by what they represent in their culture of origin. He then uses them as a support for his painting to express his own feelings. His painting work is always instinctive, spontaneous. The theme of his work is always the human being with all that he can experience in his daily life, his social life, his feelings, his joys, his difficulties in this society, the search for his origins. Here, it is a sculpture inspired by the statuettes, carrier of offerings, in the Chimu culture, in Peru between the 12th and the 15th century. This statuette was used as a model by Hergé for the Arumbaya fetish of the Broken Ear, the 6th album of the Adventures of Tintin. In these gloomy and anxious times, these "Chimus" are bearers of hope

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.
