Wood sculpture, 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, as much by their spirit as 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 live daily, his social life, his feelings, his joys, his difficulties in this society.

This is a representation of Ashanti dolls called "Akwaba" (which means "welcome" in most "Akan" ethnic groups) or more commonly "fertility dolls", reputed to promote women's fertility, they are carried on the back by young girls before marriage. They are dolls, or more precisely, sacred, "liturgical" effigies that depict feminine beauty. In these gloomy and anxious times, these Akwabas dolls, goddess of fertility, are a message of hope for life to continue and resume more beautifully.

Christian Dugardeyn (DUGA) is a Belgian artist born in Brussels in 1963. He is an artist of emotion and free expression. After an inescapable passage through the Fine Arts, he was able to emancipate himself from the artistic techniques taught and make his instinctive emotions (re)speak. He paints and sculpts viscerally, in a state of regression, on the margins of contemporary artistic trends.

He gives free rein to his emotions through different techniques, drawing, painting and sculpture remaining his favourite mediums. The early arts, African art, Oceanian art, Amerindian art, raw art, childish art have strongly marked him. It has its roots in it. Among the contemporary artists, Basquiat, Combas and the free figuration movement, Aléchinsky, Appel and the Cobra group, Picasso, Schiele and expressionism, Dubuffet and Art Brut, Street Art, ... have permeated his work. An artist cannot remain in his own corner, isolated. He must open up, reshape the influences of the past that speak to him.

In Picasso, Basquiat and Street Art, it is the distortions of the characters that interest him while keeping a certain anatomical fidelity and gesturality. The writing and graffiti of Street Art interest him by the fluidity and speed of the gesture as well as by the explosion of colors. Anything is possible.
